Region. West Metro above ground maybe

Premier, Kristine Keneally said the Government was ''committed to a metro network for Sydney'' but government sources said this probably meant building a west metro from Westmead to the city terminating at Barangaroo on the western side of the city, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. One option involves dumping two expensive tunnels - Barangaroo to Rozelle via Pyrmont and Westmead to Strathfield - and building the West Metro above ground alongside the M4 to Westmead. The architect of the proposal, urban planner Garry Glazebrook, who is a consultant to the independent public inquiry into transport backed by the Herald, estimates this would save $2.5 billion to $3.5 billion for more pressing projects
