Question mark over NSW metropolitan strategy

Posted on 10/10/2008  

Pressure from Treasury and a new “nervous” Premier mean a former State Government plan for the $1.36 billion South West Rail Link could be shelved, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The report says the rail link could be replaced with a $50 million stabling yard, effectively abandoning 10 years of integrated planning based on the south-west and north-west housing up to 400,000 people. There are also fears the proposed North West Metro will be abandoned, possibly negating a series of proposed land releases in the growth corridor.
