Parramatta. Rail link is on again

Preliminary work on the $2.6 billion Parramatta-Epping rail link could commence next year with construction due to be completed in 2017, shaving 25 minutes off the 14-kilometre trip from Parramatta to Chatswood. The line would pass through a new station at Rosehill-Camellia and upgraded stations at Rydalmere, Dundas, Telopea and Carlingford, then would meet up with the existing Chatswood-Epping line. Construction would include two tunnels, one from Parramatta to Rosehill-Camellia and another from Carlingford to Epping. Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, will promise $2.1 billion in federal funds, with the state government to contribute $520 million.
