^^^^^^^^^^^That website is ok for fiddling, but is a bit difficult to navigate with any purpose. It's very disappointing that it is focussed on local amenities around proposed stations, and not the bigger picture of improved travel times and opportunities in a future Sydney.

Surely a prime consideration must be to provide convenient interchange with as many other lines as possible. "Stacked" platforms below the Metro South West platforms at Central should be considered now, even though it would require variations to the Central Walk construction contract. The big long-term benefit would be cross-platform interchange, at least between the 2 Metro lines. Central is also the only site which can provide direct interchange with every other line in the city, including, of course, the 2 light rail lines. The Central precinct probably has more potential for redevelopment & renewal than any other on the CBD-fringe.


While they just put out an impressive Parramatta video it could all be changed after an election win but it would be more convincing if they started an access/recovery/lift shaft on the grass next to Central and next to Harris park station as auto alley will become the CBD of Parramatta when Westconnex is finished.

By using a blue am team of 6 men followed by a pink pm team of 6 women it would appeal to the westie women voter.

Perhaps the wasted $800m stadium upgrade could be deferred for ten years when the public would accept a knock down rebuild and use the money for underground stations so there is certainty.

I see that Sydney Metro West will be labor's top priority for rail development. Maybe it will be build sooner than originally thought.

One advantage in being the opposition is you can say what you would do if you get in but unless there is a start somewhere people are not convinced that this is not just another announcement from the present NSW government.

The westie women voters want a quick train with many seats https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/model/ ... e-carriage not one that goes around the world with skinny stand up trains.

The value capture with this mob http://www.acbr.com.au/star-raise-450m- ... g-partners would not match the lost patronage from Parramatta.

There was never any chance the NW Metro would be built. I don't know why anyone voted for it.

Well a lot of women protesters out west would rather have a quick seat to the CBD now rather than $800m spent on a stadium and in the end it is who gets the most votes.

Actually it sounds better to have a one stop express to Parramatta to me and let the DD do the milk runs than wasting money on upgrading the stadium when in ten years the public would accept a knock down rebuild


Many people want to stop immigration due to congestion in the east so grow the west with 150kph one stop trains connecting all of greater Sydney
