As I previously blogged, the current government has made a number of apparently ill thought through and half baked announcements, firstly Richmond to Campbelltown then single deck metro from the North West to Chatswood. The questions seems to be why? I suggest that they have been softening up the voters for something they may not like. What that might be is a revitalisation of the Western Fast Rail privatised project. Reports from when the Liberals were still in opposition quoted the current transport minister as saying that the project should be looked at more seriously.
This is complete supposition; but you heard it here first!
