Region. Premier considers Christie report

Premier, Kristina Keneally, has told the treasury and transport departments to study the recommendations of the 450-page Christie independent inquiry into Sydney's public transport. Shegave the strongest indication yet that the $5.3 billion CBD Metro could be sidelined to focus on heavy rail to the north-west and light rail in the city in her government's upcoming transport blueprint, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. Mr Christie argues instead of creating an entirely new public transport system, the government should spend $36 billion on capital investment in new rail, light rail, buses and just one metro over 30 years.
