IMSARR needs people to JOIN THE CAMPAIGN
IMSARR needs you today.
When Victor researched these plans he came across details about Bills defeated in the New South Wales Parliament that would have expanded our Railways.
This did not happen five or twenty years ago. It happened in the 1920s.
Our Transport problems go back decades.
We have put off Railway expansion for too long.
- Since the 1920s, the Tramway network has closed down and car ownership has become universal. The Railways have not kept pace with population growth.
- Since 1979, Sydney has had limited Railway expansion.
- The Eastern Suburbs Railway opened in 1979 at a cost of $168 Million. This line took 100 years to build and should have gone to Kingsford.
- The East Hills line was extended in 1984 to Glenfield.
- The Airport line opened in 2000.
What is planned is for another twenty new or extensions to existing Railway lines. That does not also take into account the urgent need to upgrade our Regional and Rural Railways.
When decisions are made by Government to build Metro Rail or NOTHING at all, who loses out?
Governments seem to govern for the marginal seats only.
- IMSARR needs people who care and want their voice heard.
- IMSARR wants to hear from everyone whether or not you live in a marginal seat.
- IMSARR wants you to JOIN THE CAMPAIGN and ISPUT needs you TODAY.
IMSARR Spokesperson Victor Taffa ran in the 2008 Ryde State By-Election because he was and still is opposed to Metro Rail and the Privatisation of the Electricity Industry in New South Wales.
During the Ryde By-Election Victor campaigned on the Eastwood line plan as contained in this website.
The launch of this website continues the campaign to upgrade and expand our Railways.
It is obvious that IMSARR needs to become a political force and contest successive State elections until the point is reached that railway lines have been extended or new lines built as per these plans put forward by IMSARR.
While Governments will come and go, people will still need to catch a train and for those living in a suburb that is not on a Railway line, it is time that everyone was given access to a Railway line.
“One of the reasons that I live where I live in Sydney is because I live on the main Northern Railway line.”
Victor would like to see more people in Sydney be able to experience the convenience of a Railway.
“We take the existing rail network for granted, but it has been left behind when it comes to expansion and upgrade”When you have Hospitals, schools, police stations and many other facilities in every suburb and town, why can’t we have new Railway lines?
People anywhere are welcome to Join the Campaign and get involved.
The issue is too important for people to be left standing on the Platform, particularly at a railway station that does not yet exist.
