Common Sense prevails in Newcastle East

Dec 4, 2020Uncategorized

We’re proud to announce the re-introduction of a direct route from Newcastle East to Marketown shopping centre!

The Union has received messages of thanks from State Member for Newcastle, Tim Crakanthorp, and from the Newcastle East Residents Group (NERG), thanking the members for their support throughout the campaign.

“I am please to advise that Newcastle Transport has today notified me that a new bus service will start operating in December linking Newcastle East to Marketown… Thank you for your support and for working with me to deliver this important service for Newcastle East residents.”

State Member for Newcastle, Tim Crakanthorp

“A big ‘thank you’ from local residents and workers in the East End. Your efforts to secure a bus service to Marketown are greatly appreciated. The removal of loop buses through residential streets is a wonderful outcome!”
