Newcastle Walk Through Details below:

On Saturday, April 28th, SFAUDi member David Wilson, who is Principal of Transit Network Planning with Transport for NSW, will be showing us around Newcastle, for an update on the Newcastle Transformation and Transport Program, including the Stage 2 extension to the light rail from Stage 1, which is now under construction, plus a short presentation about the Newcastle Revitalisation Program. The walk starts at the Newcastle Interchange and is followed by a walk through the Honeysuckle Precinct, a ferry trip to Stockton, and then lunch. The visit will last a few hours, so we need to arrive in the city preferably by 11.00am. David has suggested some options for train times, listed below. Again, please let us know if you can join us – it promises to be a fascinating and memorable outing.

Best regards,

Hamish Robertson
