Region. West Metro in the plans

The West Metro would be built within five years and light rail would be built in the CBD, ccording to the transport blueprint that Kristina Keneally will release this month, government sources say, according to The Sydney Morning Herald. It is understood the $8 billion to $10 billion Western Metro will go from Westmead to Pyrmont. Original plans for a $5.3 billion CBD Metro to Rozelle will be dumped. Money for the West Metro will come from the sale of electricity assets and from increases expected in revenues as the economy recovers, sources said. The executive director of Infrastructure Partnerships Australia, Brendan Lyon, backed the West Metro yesterday. The north-west of the city will remain largely neglected in the plan. The government's attitude is that there are not enough marginal Labor seats there and that there is more population in the west to serve first
