Roads Minister visit was 'important', says MacDonald
Parliamentary Secretary for Planning and the Central Coast Mr Scot MacDonald has described as "important" the visit of Roads Minister Ms Melinda Pavey to Woy Woy on Thursday, February 9.
"But it was important Ms Pavey and her staff saw for themselves the roads and talked to local leaders, so when the project and funding proposals come through, they have a good understanding of the challenges," he said.
"I was very grateful Minister Pavey made time to inspect some road issues on the Peninsula," Mr MacDonald said.
"We inspected the rail crossing at Rawsons Road, the rail underpass and congestion pinch points in the area," he said.
"We were joined by the President of the Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, Mr Matthew Wales.
"I am not interested in looking back and apportioning blame for lack of progress on some of these proposals.
"The Minister made it clear she is receptive to quality proposals that meet cost-benefit analysis.
"I will now be engaging Roads and Maritime Services and Central Coast Council to co-ordinate and prioritise road works in the Gosford electorate.
"The NSW Liberal National Government has a strong financial position, but all levels of government need to ensure sound projects are advanced and are within budget capability," he said.
