Funds committed to improve facilities for commuters

The Federal Government had committed $5 million towards parking in Woy Woy and had committed funds for improved mobile and internet coverage along the train line to Hornsby, Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks has said.

"We have been working closely with the NSW government and Council to determine what can be delivered in Woy Woy for our commuters and this work is ongoing," she said.

"Both the Federal Government and Council understand it is important that a decision is made as soon as possible, so we can commence the relevant works for commuters."

Mrs Wicks said the Coalition Government had committed $12 million alongside $4 million from the NSW government to deliver improved mobile and internet connectivity on station platforms and in trains to Hornsby.

"New mobile sites have been delivered this year at Mt Colah and Mt Kuring-gai," Mrs Wicks said.

"Work is underway to complete up to an additional 16 sites over the coming months.

"A significant amount of construction is scheduled over the coming weeks to enable completion of the additional mobile sites and tunnels.

"Free wi-fi services are now online at station platforms including Asquith, Berowra, Cowan, Hawkesbury River, Mt Colah and Mt Kuring-gai."

Mrs Wicks said upgrades on the M1 Motorway were also complete and traffic was flowing freely through the Kariong to Somersby upgrade and the section between Tuggerah and Doyalson.

"The M1 Motorway works hand-in-hand with NorthConnex, benefitting more than 70,000 people who use the motorway each day," she said.

"NorthConnex is the missing link in the national highway route, linking the M1 Motorway in Wahroonga to the Hills M2 Motorway.

"It consists of a 9km tunnel, bypassing 21 sets of traffic lights on Pennant Hills Rd, and once completed will save motorists about 15 minutes in travel time."
