NSW Public Transport Planning puts Victoria to Shame

A significant example of sustainable and appropriate public transport planning as NSW releases rail plans for a North West Link in Sydney.

The proposed “ north west rail link will deliver commuters from Rouse Hill to Chatswood at an average speed, including 12 stops, at about 60km/h… if the predicted speed, included in planning documents for the $9 billion project, is achieved it will make the link one of the fastest metro-style train lines in the world, quicker than metros in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore”.
