It's the rural highways here that are the biggest waste of money though. Just look at that proposal for a 3 level stack in Perth, Tasmania a few pages back.

I mean seriously, a 3 level stack in rural NSW would be overkill, let alone Tasmania.

Pure porkbarelling.

It's a Y interchange, not a stack. And at no point does it have 3 levels
