Just noticed this on ABC news http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200703/s1876387.htm Major parties unveil roads and transport pledges Both the New South Wales Premier and the Opposition Leader have declared transport a key election issue. The Coalition says it will spend $1.2 billion upgrading roads, including major highways and major Sydney thoroughfares. The Coalition's main initiative on public transport would be a four-year freeze on fares. It is also promising more train services in Sydney and says it will extend the existing light rail line to Circular Quay. Opposition Leader Peter Debnam says he will dismantle the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) and create a transport overseer called the Transport Services Coordination Authority (TSCA). The Government is also promising to increase capacity on major Sydney roads, including Victoria Road. It says it will buy more buses and train stock, expand the railway clearways program to untangle the Cityrail network and increase capacity on trains to Sydney's north-west and south-west. The Greens' transport policy focusses on increased investment in public transport and a major increase in funding for bike tracks.
