A big thanks to Tanya Davies MP, Member for Mulgoa and Gladys Berejiklian, NSW Premier for organising a grant of $9,000 to convert more of our lighting at the Luddenham Showground over to LED. The cheque was handed over at a Community Lunch held last month in Mulgoa.

The NSW Government proposes to build a new TAFE campus in the Aerotropolis, to deliver specialised training in fields like construction carpentry, electrical and plumbing.

Sydney Metro Greater West is carrying out early site investigations. This work is part of early planning work to help develop the project design of the Sydney Metro Greater West, the new metro railway line which will service Greater Western Sydney and the new Western Sydney International (Nancy-Bird Walton) Airport. The new railway will include stations at the airport, Western Sydney Aerotropolis and St Marys – where customers can connect with the rest of Sydney’s existing suburban rail network. This line will pass through parts of Luddenham and we understand there will be a station in the Science Park, however, not sure if there will be any other stations in Luddenham.
