Newcastle’s western corridor is growing rapidly, but postal services aren’t keeping up.
- The closest post office for residents of Minmi, Maryland and Fletcher is at Wallsend, which is a long way for residents to travel if they rely on public transport or have mobility problems.
- Meanwhile, Wallsend residents are seeing queues at their local post office grow and grow.
- It’s time for the Morrison Government to step up and give western suburbs residents the postal service they deserve.
We call on the Morrison Government and Australia Post to establish a new post office in the Minmi, Maryland and Fletcher area.
