Transport Grants To Improve Passenger Infrastructure


Member for Bega Andrew Constance today announced $62,000 in NSW Government grants to improve public transport facilities for passengers across the Eurobodalla.

“Our communities will greatly benefit from these projects. The six upgraded shelters and one new stop will make people’s public transport journey safer, easier and more comfortable,” Mr Constance said.

Mr Constance said that Transport for NSW received 78 applications from 47 organisations, and these projects were successful in the Eurobodalla Shire for funding in the 2015-17 round of the Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grants Scheme (CPTIGS).

The scheme’s primary purpose is to fund projects that improve amenity and accessibility, including installing guidance for people with visual impairments and wheelchair and family friendly shelters, ramps and hardstands. All applications are required to meet the Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport.

“The scheme benefits our local passengers with a wide range of projects, including new bus seats, timetable and information poles and boards, tactile indicators, bus stop upgrades, security lighting and new shelters, with the works to be undertaken by Eurobodalla Shire Council,” Mr Constance said.

“The NSW Government is committed to providing high quality service to our regional transport customers and is getting on with the job of providing improvements and upgrades across the network”

Cr Liz Innes, Mayor Eurobodalla Shire Council said the replacement shelters will be welcomed in Broulee, Surf Beach, Dalmeny, Tuross Head, Tomakin and Moruya, while a new bus stop at Sunshine Bay will benefit residents there.

“This funding allows us to accelerate our bus shelter replacement program over the next three years from one replacement each year to two. It’s a good result and as always we’re grateful to Andrew for his support of our region’s transport needs.”

Over $2.8 million was awarded in total across regional New South Wales.
