Meeting with Cr Peter Cox to discuss our survey outcomes and the letter received from Director General of TMR.   With a follow-up email outlining the below comment.

It is important to note that the CAMCOS (heavy rail between Kawana to Beerwah) station is still listed in the master plan to stop on the other side of the entry to our estate. If that was deemed an area suitable for a station in the future, then surely a bus service now would allow decision-makers to understand the patron numbers to justify a station.

Letter from Director General of Transport and Main Roads[151623] 151020

Email MP Jarrod Bliejie a response to the Letter from the Director-General of TMR.

Outlining how disappointed we are that TMR has reiterated points from previous correspondence from up to ten years ago. That the points they raised are mostly outdated and many things have changed in this time.  Plus that decisions have been made without consultation with SCC regarding infrastructure cost or changes.  That we are still requesting a meeting with TMR to take them through our survey results and our unique community needs.   Community consultation is required.
