Infrastructure NSW – Light Rail vs Alternative Recommendation for CBD

INSW Light Rail Infrastructure NSW in its Restart 2012 State Infrastructure Strategy:  First Things First  recommended against Light Rail for the CBD (see table from report for comparison). While they did support a line for Moore Park, Racecourse and UNSW it was noted that the service for average commuters living in the south east would be diminished because of the longer travel time and change of mode.  By contrast the 2014 Update is ‘more aligned’ with TfNSW and also contains a recommendation to explore constructing Light Rail to La Perouse but linked to what would need to be significant increased population density particularly on government owned landINSW Light Rail extension (note the route takes in Little Bay Road to Chifley Oval and Cemetery).
