Travelling between the Northern Beaches and the city faster and more reliably is one step closer with the finalisation of the proposed reference design for Beaches Link.
The Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link program is an important part of the NSW Government’s vision to create an integrated road and public transport network.
Member for Manly James Griffin said the updated proposed reference design for Beaches Link marks an important step towards delivering a state of the art transport network for Sydney.
“This project will connect Sydney’s north unlike ever before, people will be able to spend less time in traffic and more time doing the things they care about thanks to this game-changing piece of infrastructure,” Mr Griffin said.
“Along with the significant time savings we predict for people travelling between the Northern Beaches and the CBD, North Sydney, Chatswood and Macquarie Park, the project will unlock new opportunities for improved public transport, including new and improved express bus services as well as direct bus access to North Sydney to connect with the new Sydney Metro.”
Local organisations on the Northern Beaches can now apply for funding to support local community projects under the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program, Member for Manly James Griffin said today.
Mr Griffin said $12.5 million is available in 2019/20 for new or upgraded facilities across sport and recreation, arts and culture, disaster readiness and community infrastructure.
The popular beach volleyball tournament Volleyfest will be back on the golden sands of Manly next year.
Member for Manly James Griffin said the NSW Government will support the 2020 international event as the country’s best volleyballers build-up to the Tokyo Summer Olympics.
