Region. No funding for major projects

Infrastructure Australia, an independent federal government body listed no major transport project in the metropolitan area for “ready to proceed” funding. Projects for consideration included the $4 billion duplication of the M5 tunnel and the $11 billion M4 east, which would help commuters from the south-west and west respectively. Rail projects requiring funding were the $6.7 billion North-West Rail Link and the $4.5 billion Western Express, from Central to Westmead. “Threshold” project _ ones not ready to proceed because of outstanding issues included the South-West Rail Link and the Moorebank intermodal terminal.
