Representatives from WSPTU Have Met The NSW Minister OF Transport - A Window Of Opportunity!

As active volunteer public transport advocates, we have never had a face to face meeting with the NSW Minister of Transport, until of recent.

So as previously mentioned (refer previous blog,  WSPTU was highly selected from over 400 community groups and organisations, provided a window of opportunity to discuss Public Transport issues/improvements with our selection of the NSW Minister of Transport. The selection process was done within the NSW Premiers Department.

On Monday, 1st July 2013, The Gladys Berejiklian, Hon. NSW Minister of Transport was introduced to myself and I was asked if I had the Minister before today. Yes I had (Click Here For My Previous Meeting with Gladys Berejiklian, Hon. Minister of Transport). And the Minister remembered!

Both Susan day and myself  (Steering Committee Members of WSPTU), had decided after providing topics of discussions to the NSW Premiers Department to approach the NSW Minister of Transport, Gladys Berejiklian on the educational process we use to link to local community groups and individuals; via the WSPTU Policy Committee. Also included was a plan for future of WSPTU in relation to having stronger links with the NSW Government in relation to public transport information. We will not elaborate on this, as yet, until we receive a response from the NSW Transport Minister, herself.

At the end of the day, with the 10 minute window of opportunity to present our case, the Minister know her portfolios very well and understands that we are a lobby group that does advocate for public transport in Western Sydney, for and behalf of the people. She also respected our views, we also respected her views and comments. It was a great inroad for members of WSPTU and commuters to  have their say for the future of public transport and be 'Heard'!
