“We need to invest heavily in a public transport system with integrated bike lanes.

The Alison Road bike path must be preserved.

Both major parties spend too heavily on car oriented urban road transport.

I’m committed to light rail powered by renewable energy but the loss of mature trees must be reduced. The Greens have pushed the Liberals into providing a scrutiny mechanism over individual tree threats. My Council motion started the search for an alternative site to the High Cross Park interchange.”

“I catch the bus every day, it’s crucial, but public transport in our area needs to improve.

Outdated timetables, late services and buses which simply never come are unacceptable; this is the primary means of transport for local school kids, the elderly and working people.

We also need a feasibility study into expanding light rail to Maroubra Junction and Eastgardens, moving the beginning of the rail journey further south to reduce the planned trade-off between bus services along Anzac Parade.”
