Premier promises "Quantum Leap" in transport

Filed under: Uncategorized — ralphbuttigieg @ 12:04 pm


Our Premier announced yesterday a new public transport system:

NSW Premier Morris Iemma today revealed plans for a $12 billion European-style metro line from the CBD to the city’s north-west, which will result in travel times from Rouse Hill to Wynyard being reduced by as much as 45 minutes.

Mr Iemma said the single-deck metros would run every four to five minutes and would link to interchanges with existing CityRail and bus routes.

There would be 17 stops between the CBD, under Victoria Road and to Rouse Hill.

It is likely the trains will be driverless and will be underground for about 32 kilometres and above ground for five kilometres….

Call me a cynic and sceptic if you like but I’ll believe it when I see it. If it ever come about it will be redundant anyway as we will have Star Trek transporters by then. Not that will stop Iemma the Incompetent re-announcing the plan every few months.
