The NSW Govt is still fixated on motorway mega projects, where there is no control on the cost!

 

 

 

This sounds like a good plan! But wait it gives far less value capture opportunity for Liberal mates in the Property Council of Australia, Urban Task Force, Committee for Sydney, CIMIC and MTR Corp from Hong Kong. So it will go nowhere, I am sure.

Tunnel visionary

After boasting for years that the WestConnex motorway would relieve traffic congestion, conveniently omitting the word “temporarily”, the government has now reportedly succumbed to the fact that a western harbour tunnel is required “because traffic from the motorway would otherwise overwhelm the Anzac Bridge” (“WestConnex bill to soar past $45 billion”, April 15-16).

A two-track Metro between the Bays Precinct and Seaforth via the Wynyard “tram” platforms could be built for half the tunnelling costs of a four-lane motorway. Killing numerous birds with one stone, it would form stage one of the planned “Western” Metro between Badgerys / Parramatta and Brookvale / Warriewood / Frenchs Forest.
