Region. Borger warns on roads

The Minister for Road and the Minister for Western Sydney, David Borger, warned Sydney needed to be careful not to repeat some of its worst urban planning the transformation of its roads – they don’t have natural movement corridors. Among those he instanced were Sydney Olympic Park, the Church Street mall in Parramatta and High Street in Penrith. “They can't support high-end retail and they feel dead and lifeless and we are always trying to put things into them to make them work. We have had a series of urban interventions in the last 30 years where we have closed streets and they haven't always worked,” he said.
