Parramatta. Jobs slashed. Metro deferred

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that the Christie Report on Sydney’s transport plan uncovered 30-year forecasts, published in December by the government’s Transport Data Centre, which revealed the number of new jobs in Parramatta has been slashed by almost two-thirds from 30,000 to just 11,000 in the 30 years from 2006. The report supported the West Metro but said its construction should be deferred until 2020. The Urban Taskforce’s chief executive, Aaron Gadiel, said that the transport projects outlined in the plan would smooth the way for urban growth and renewal and should be examined by both the government and opposition alike.
