NSW Government promises 100 days of transport focus


Following
the outcome of the NSW state elections on the weekend, the Liberals leader
Barry O’Farrell has promised a 100 day focus on transport in NSW, particularly
on roads and rail systems and includes the establishment of a Public Service
Commission, the integration of public transport agencies and the launch of
Infrastructure NSW, to take control of large infrastructure projects.

The
body will be responsible for prioritising large projects based on actual needs
of the community. Labor’s controversial Part 3A planning laws, allowing
government to overrule councils on big projects, will be thrown out and a new
planning commission established.

O’Farrell
has made the construction of the north-west rail line the centrepiece of his
transport policy, with construction expected to commence ”some time” during
this four-year term.

Watch
this space as we keep an eye on the new State Government’s transport policy
announcements over the coming weeks.
