Great Day at the WSPTU Transport Symposium 2010

We had a great day at the WSPTU Transport Symposium 2010 last Saturday, August 7, at the Granville Youth and Community Recreation Centre.

WSPTU thanks our guest presenters for their terrific contributions:
Prof Corrine Mulley and Dr Rhonda Daniels from the Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies at the Univeristy of Sydney
Vicki Jarvis from Railcorp
John Evenden from Accessible Public Domain and Dave Davies from Busways

We had people attending, as individuals and representing groups, from the Macarthur, the Hills, Parramatta, Fairfield, Bankstown, Liverpool, Blacktown, Mt Druitt, Penrith and the Blue Mountains.

It was also great to connect with a lot of new people who are interested to work to help improve public transport in their local areas.

Also thanks to Ray Williams MP, Liberal Member for the Hawkesbury, and Stacy Ryan, from Minister David Borger's Office, for attending and adding to the day. Thanks also to the people who attended from the NSW Commuters Council, Action For Public Transport and EcoTransit. Thanks also to Western Sydney Community Forum for supporting the day and the WSPTU.

We will process all the information gathered and we will publish that as soon as possible. We will also prepare a report for participants and develop a follow-up program of recommendations and actions for local groups and the WSPTU Steering Committee. We will also contact all the people who nominated for the WSPTU Steering Committee.

Thanks to everyone who came and participated.
