An update on the local Women’s Community Shelter. The WP Ball 2017 raised the funds required to get this off the ground. The next steps have started!



Women’s Community Shelters are delighted to be working towards a new shelter for women, with or without children in the Parramatta LGA! We are extremely grateful for the support of Wentworth Point Community Central and City of Parramatta for their contribution of the set-up costs for this new shelter. Now we need the right people to form a local Board, who will be supported by WCS, to get things moving! Our shelter model involves community participation, fundraising and local advocacy and draws in incredible community support

Would you like to be a part of it? Come along to our Community Forum in partnership with City of Parramatta on Wednesday, 21st March from 6-8 PM at Parramatta City Meeting Rooms, 1 Fitzwilliam Street, Parramatta. Full invitation and RSVP details below!!

Could you please share amongst your networks for those who may be interested?

If you want the shuttle to continue, make your voice heard to Council by sending a letter. Details provided on the link below.

WPPS visit

Today, I visited the school as a guest of Principal Rose. It was fabulous to see how what was an empty block a year ago has been transformed into a vibrant school.

Rose has been the driving force to bring the school together with a seemingly endless supply of energy. This school is nothing like what I remember from my long ago school years!

The school can accommodate 400 kids. There will need to be a second phase of building to expand to the promised 1000, but there’s no timeline for this.

Baylink Shuttle Update

The Baylink Shuttle trial continues to receive great community support, with more than 35,000 passenger trips in the first 3 weeks of service.

In response to some of the comments we’ve received, a number of changes to the current service have now been implemented and include:

* *An extended service to Rhodes Waterside shopping centre every 20 minutes during non–peak periods. Ask the driver, or check the Bennelong Bridge website (bennelongbridge.com.au) for details.

* A minor change to the route on the Rhodes side of the bridge to improve on-time running. This requires the relocation of the stop on Gauthorpe Street to Shoreline Drive.

* Changes to Stop 1 on Baywater Drive – Stop 1 has moved approx 70-100 metres west on Baywater Drive (to near the corner of Monza Boulevard). Please note, this an ‘in-lane’ bus stop, similar to Stop 2 at the Pulse Function Centre on Stromboli Strait.

*On-demand passenger drop-off stop southbound on Hill Road.

Your feedback is needed!

Billbergia’s long term plans for the Baylink Shuttle include an additional 2 buses (4 in total) as part of a proposal for the last stage of Billbergia’s waterfront development on Burroway Road.

Delivery of the service will depend on Council’s approval of Billbergia’s plans and an assessment on how the service can assist in reducing private vehicle use and encourage greater use of public transport.

Your feedback is needed to help keep the Baylink Shuttle running as a permanent service.
We encourage you to provide your feedback about the trial and your thoughts about the long term operation of Baylink Shuttle trial to City of Parramatta Council before 9 March 2018.

You can send feedback via email to
Council@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au and andrew.wilson@cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au

Or via mail to
City of Parramatta
PO Box 32, Parramatta NSW 2124

You can also contact us via email info@baylinkshuttle.com.au or by phone 1800 WWP BUS with any queries and for more information about Billbergia’s plans.

Regards

Baylink Shuttle
Project Team
