Newington Metro - call to action!

Updated:  Tuesday 24th April — Speakers Confirmed

SYDNEY METRO WEST
- STATION AT NEWINGTON -

We need your help.

Newington will have a train tunnel under the suburb in 2028-2029.
However we may not have a station at Newington.  We need to act now.



Everything depends on numbers!
The NSW government is going to measure in May 2018 how popular this idea is.


Make yourself known:

#1- Attend:
Community Forum and Rally

Newington Community Centre, Tue 1st May 6:30pm
Key speakers:  Luke Foley, NSW Leader of the Opposition

Hosted by Newington Precinct 3, P1 South and P1 North committees
Speakers include community leaders, Parramatta councillors and representatives from Newington Marketplace and Business Park.

#2- Attend:
Sydney Metro official information sessions

Saturday 21st April, 10am-2pm
Thursday 3rd May, 4pm-8pm
Novotel Sydney Olympic Park, 11 Olympic Blvd, Sydney Olympic Park
These will be attended by officials from Transport for NSW, to give official answers for planning in progress.
Please let them know how necessary and urgently you need better public transport in Newington.
They will ask your suburb and add up the total — make us count!

#3- Go online, drop a pin:
Transport for NSW SocialPinPoint website

https://tfnsw.mysocialpinpoint.com/sydney-metro-west#/
Drop a pin on your location and give your reasons for 20-minute rail to city
Go Newington, make us count!
The government will be counting these and using this for their decision.

#4- Go online, like a pin:
Transport for NSW SocialPinPoint website

https://tfnsw.mysocialpinpoint.com/sydney-metro-west#/
Find all your neighbours' pins and give them a 'Like'!
The government will also be counting these.  Just as important as #3.

#5- Send a letter.  Or send an email.
(A nice letter stands out these days!)

Mail: Sydney Metro West, PO Box K659 Haymarket NSW 1240

#6- Live in a strata?  Get your committee to have their say!
Ask them to do one of their own:
 - pins (#3)
 - likes (#4)
 - letters (#5)
And to send someone to the information sessions too.



THE DEADLINE IS THE FIRST WEEK OF MAY.

Not sure what to say?
For some ideas and good reasons to get the Newington Metro, see the attached PDF.
This formed Precinct 3's submission to Metro West / Transport for NSW.
