Parramatta. Importance of city not recognised

Parramatta City Council’s submission on the government’s Metropolitan Transport Plan stated it has three significant concerns: the lack of support for Parramatta as “the second city”; funding for projects over a 10-year period for “far too short” in the context of urban development; and the creation of the Sydney Metropolitan Development Authority created a further level of bureaucracy rather than reforming the governance of metropolitan Sydney. “Parramatta City Council would argue that this transport plan does not integrate or recognise the importance of the Metropolitan Strategy and will do nothing to enhance the importance of Parramatta in the short- or long-term,” the submission said.
