tragic. yet another broken promise. something needs to be done.
The Libs did commission, prior to the 2003 election, one of the planning firms (Connell-Wagner I think) to do some preliminary work on a Spit Tunnel. The plan was for a twin two-lane tunnel from the Warringah Freeway at (well, in) Cammeray Golf Club to mid way along the Burnt Bridge Creek deviation.The second is a road tunnel from Manly Road (or wherever more convenient) to the Warringah Freeway, which at twice the length of the Cross City Tunnel (and thus twice the toll?) and complications of building under waterways and rich people, not to mention the sensitive issue of whether you want to build a smoke stack in Seaforth, Clontarf Castlecrag, Mosman or Northbridge, all populated by people happy to put in a little pro bono work to ensure whichever planning minister decides where it goes never gets work, or oxygen, in this town again.
:cheers:But as long as the mood up there is to reject a train line, if it were ever proposed, the residents of the Northern Beaches can **** off into their self-imposed NIMBY exile from the rest of Sydney. Here's to another 4 years of Labor fucking them over!
What do you expect? Nothing. They don't care about NSW at all.Did we really expect anything else from this government?
I didnt vote for the clowns at all because I knew they would do nothing, and this confirms it even more. I still don't understand why they would be elected if they were doing nothing.You Sydneysiders voted for these clowns.... but I guess it was damned if you do damned if you don't with current state politics in NSW!
Yes, agree totally. Talk of another Harbour crossing, despite it being desperately needed sounds like pie in the sky to me the way all Aust Govts are underspending on infrastructure.My prediction for the next project canceled or delayed indefinitely:
* All proposed train lines: northwest, southwest and Chatswood to Redfern
I agree with you completely Avatar, but I can't see it being done in this political climate. The word "infrastructure" means nothing to this government.Personally there really needs to be a road and rail tunnel that satisfies the Spit and Military road corridor, **** the cost, it's needed now before things get even more expensive. If it's not built soon th cost with spiral out of control.
