huge change coming to public transport

New South Wales will ease restrictions on public transport to allow more people to go back to work in the CBD from July 1. 

Twenty-three people will be allowed on a bus, 68 in a train carriage, 450 on a ferry and 40 in a light rail carriage.  

Social distancing will still be advised, with green dots showing customers where they can sit.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she still wanted people to avoid peak hours if possible. 

In May the public transport network in Sydney was running at about 25 per cent of capacity. 

Ms Berejiklian said changes in July will allow this to double. 

‘We’re still encouraging people to travel outside the peak where possible, but now we will have extra capacity in the peak, almost doubling capacity in the peak from 1 July, which is great news,’ she said. 

In normal times 2.2million journeys are made on NSW public transport per day. 

In May the figure was at 570,000 which was maximum capacity while keeping passengers 1.5 metres apart.

The NSW Government’s COVIDSafe Transport Plan 

Avoiding peak travel: If you are not already using public transport in the peak, please do NOT use public transport in the peak. Services are already close to capacity to allow for distancing at these times. Off peak times are between 10am and 2pm;

Deep cleaning and more hand sanitisers: Intense and ongoing cleaning will occur throughout the transport network and there will be a continued rollout of hand sanitiser at key transport hubs, including at high demand stations;

Boosting parking: Special event-style parking arrangements will be in place at Moore Park for people who are able to drive to work. Other locations will be rolled out soon. In addition car park operators will be offering special deals for all day parking;

More cycling and walking options: The Government is working with councils on establishing pop-up cycleways and enhancing pedestrian access to allow more people to find alternative routes to work;

‘No dot, no spot’: Distinctive green dots will be used on trains, buses and ferries to show passengers the safest places to sit and stand. A ‘No dot, no spot’ will see passengers asked to wait for the next service. School children will be given priority access;

More data: Customers to be given real time information through Apps, social media and Transport Info to see which services have space available to maintain physical distancing; and

More services: Changes will be considered to increase services eg; more ferries, water taxis and private vehicle passenger services on the water.

Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny’s son, Jett Kenny, has been spotted for the first time since the tragic death of his sister Jaimi.

The 26-year-old model was seen on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast getting out of a red Mercedes with surf ski attached to the roof racks.

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant looked downcast but put on a brave face.

Days earlier Jett Kenny had admitted he wasn’t always the best brother to Jaimi, who battled an eating disorder for many years.

‘I may not have been the best brother to you all the time, I know you thought you weren’t being the big sister I needed all the time, but I do know we loved one another unconditionally all the time,’ he wrote on his Instagram page on Tuesday.

‘I will love you forever. Rest In Peace my beautiful big sister, the world lost one of its treasures yesterday but heaven gained one. You will be dearly missed by all whose lives you touched.’  

Over the past week, the heartbroken brother has sought the comfort of friends, to make it through the harrowing period.

But on Friday, he was seen alone sporting a white baseball cap, navy blue board shorts and a plain white t-shirt with dark sunglasses.

Appearing relaxed in a pair of thongs, the Queensland lifesaver but on a brave face in the wake of his heart-wrenching loss.

On Wednesday, Jett shared footage of himself drinking cocktails and eating pizza with pals on Instagram at a trendy Brisbane restaurant.

One photo shows him smiling as he sits behind a table overlooking the water, while joined by his friend Jamo Porter. 

Also in attendance was Jamo’s partner, Karis Ramsay, who uploaded a photo of Jett and Jamo enjoying a lighthearted conversation. 

‘Happy anniversary,’ Karis wrote next to the image, suggesting that that the purpose of the outing was to celebrate her and Jamo’s relationship milestone. 

Sitting in front of Jett and his pal were plates of chips, a burger, several large pizzas and two cold beverages.

The Curry-Kenny family confirmed Jaimi’s death on Monday afternoon.  

‘It is with a very heavy heart that Lisa and I confirm that our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital this morning in the company of loving family,’ said Jaimi’s father, Grant.

‘Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself,’ he continued.

‘Our hearts are broken and the pain is immense but we must move forward cherishing every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured first child.

‘We thank the incredible team at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for their tireless commitment to making her better and giving us the extra time we were able to spend with her.

‘It goes without saying that this is a very difficult time for family and friends and we trust we will all be allowed to grieve in privacy.’

An ex-NRL star has admitted to throwing a rock through a window of a boxing gym he once worked at as well as intimidating staff.

Daniel Conn, 34, who once starred for the Canterbury Bulldogs, Gold Coast Titans and Sydney Roosters faced charges from three separate instances at the Hustle Boxing gym in Potts Point in Sydney.

Conn pleaded guilty to intimidation and stalking, destroying property and breaching an AVO, and on Friday was sentenced to an aggregate 14 month conditional release order.

Conn had quit working at the boutique gym last year and on December 8 he threw a rock through one of the glass windows, the Downing Centre Court heard.

Within days he returned to the gym only to be told by an employee he ‘wasn’t welcome’, The Daily Telegraph reported.

The 34-year-old then shouted: ‘You don’t know what you’ve done, you don’t know what will happen next’.

The owner of the Hustle Boxing gym then took an AVO out against Conn, which banned him from being within 100 metres of the fitness centre.

The retired NRL player then drove past the gym on a scooter on December 19 and waived to those inside.

Conn on Friday said he would cover the $4,520 cost of the broken window.

Magistrate Michael Antrum took into account that Conn had been receiving help for mental health issues but condemned his behaviour towards the gym’s staff.

The 34-year-old had also starred on the hit reality show Geordie Shore with Vicky Pattison

‘We live in a generally peaceful community and while a boxing gym may not be an obvious target for intimidation, all persons are entitled to attend a workplace without fear of intimidation,’ he said. 

The conditions of Conn’s release order means he must pay compensation to the gym as well as continue mental health treatment.

The 34-year-old retired from the NRL in 2011 and became a personal trainer.

He also featured on the hit reality show Geordie Shore in 2013 and briefly dated star Vicky Pattison.

Conn was also once the face and global athletic director of the F45 fitness chain.

Recently the ex-footy star opened up about his struggles with depression and his attempts at taking his own life.

Gary Ablett claims coronavirus vaccine will ‘change our DNA’ in bizarre rant

gary ablett claims coronavirus vaccine will change our dna in bizarre rant

AFL legend Gary Ablett Sr has taken to YouTube to deliver a complex rant linking the coronavirus pandemic to ‘End Times’ biblical prophecies, and conspiracy theories about Freemasons and the Illuminati.

The 27-minutes long video filmed in his car and posted to YouTube on Friday provided a very rare insight into the state of mind of a man who many regard as the greatest to have played the sport.

Ablett, 58, who had seldom spoken publicly throughout his playing career and since, made up for lost time with an extraordinary video that linked COVID-19 to the ‘new world order’ and the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Scroll down for video.

‘It’s not natural. It didn’t come from bats. They’re lying to us and they have been for decades,’ Mr Ablett said of the virus.

‘It was man made in a lab. Deliberately designed and deliberately released.’

‘They don’t want a cure. Why? Because they want us to take their vaccines. And their vaccines are going to kill us. They want to wipe out billions of people.’

The 58-year-old says later in the video that the development of a vaccine is part of a ‘trans-humanist’ plot.

‘These vaccines they are talking about, they want to change our DNA and there are things in them… and they are trying to link us up with artificial intelligence so we can both give and receive messages.’ 

Ablett, who is the father of dual Brownlow Medallist Gary Ablett Jr, said the virus is ‘camouflage’ for globalist agendas like the introduction of a one-world currency and the banning of cash.

‘They need to crash the global economy… [so that] cash will be gone and what they are trying to bring in is their global digital currency,’ he said.

‘A one-world money system that is going to lead to the mark of the beast.’

Mr Ablett repeatedly touched on religious themes in the lengthy monologue and said the rapture – when Christians are unified with God – was ‘imminent’.

He also argued the Victorian Premier was being used by those who were conducting the conspiracy.

‘Daniel Andrews is nothing but a puppet to a very corrupt establishment and Victoria is the test case for what they are wanting to do in the entire nation,’ Mr Ablett said.

‘We need to wake up and rise up and stand against this stuff and expose them for who they really are because it’s all satanic.

‘The only real answer for the world at this time is to repent of your sins and give your heart to Jesus Christ.’
