promises, promises
MP Greg Warren delivering a stinging attack on the state government last week

More than a year after the last election, we are still waiting for the Baird Government to deliver on its promises for our region, Campbelltown MP Greg Warren has told NSW Parliament.

Twelve months on and we are still waiting for the extra 450 car parking spaces at Campbelltown Station, still waiting for Stage 2 of the Campbelltown Hospital redevelopment and still waiting for the Menangle-Spring Farm Link Road – along with the enormous proposed cost rise of seniors cards, Mr Warren said.

“Excited seems to be the word of the day but, to be frank, I am about as excited as a pensioner trying to top up his Opal card—which is not very excited at all—about the proposal by this Government,’’ the MP said in parliament.

“Commuters will have to bear a 48 per cent fare increase.

“As my friend and colleague from Macquarie Fields pointed out, this government has an issue when members on this side of the chamber try to add some facts to the story. They do not like it.

“We all welcome upgrades to services and infrastructure in the areas where they are required. “We do not hear a lot of answers about funding infrastructure in areas that really need it,’’ Mr Warren said.

“There are still commuters in my electorate of Campbelltown waiting for a 450-space carpark.

“There have been all the promises in the world but no funding has been allocated.’’
