Bypass to Finally Bring Relief to Pitt Town

After years of anticipation and delays, the long-awaited Pitt Town Bypass is finally set to become a reality.

NSW Premier Chris Minns announced the milestone during his visit to the Hawkesbury in June. “Starting today, the construction industry can submit proposals to build the crucial Pitt Town Bypass.

Training more than 40 hours a week at The Ballet School Australia (TBSA), some days from 10 am until 9 pm, her commitment led to an invitation to the prestigious 5-week Summer Intensive in Houston, Texas – a program notoriously difficult to get into. Shedden, who left school after Year 10 to pursue ballet, says, “I knew I was already behind so I needed to catch up; I decided I had to risk something for it.”
