Parramatta. Prefered route for West Metro link

The NSW Government has announced its preferred route and stations for Sydney's West Metro project. The 24-kilometre rail link would have 11 stops, including Westmead, Parramatta, Burwood, Sydney Olympic Park, Leichhardt and Sydney University. Transport Minister, David Campbell, said $30 million of NSW and federal money was spent on deciding the route and another $91 million in federal funds would be spent on detailed plans, "Construction money for the Western Metro at this stage is not available. We'll continue to work with the Commonwealth to seek that money," Mr Campbell said.
