Region. Western Sydney 'grinding to a halt'

If the NSW government had borrowed to fund the total cost of all the tollways built since the Sydney Harbour Tunnel, the state would be $4.6 billion better off. This is the conclusion of a report commissioned by the Western Sydney Regional Organisation of Councils, to look at ways of solving the infrastructure crisis now facing the area. WSROC president, Clr Alison McLaren, said the findings showed that the government could no longer claim it could not afford to build or operate new transport and community infrastructure. “Western Sydney, like many other parts of Australia, is grinding to a halt because we don’t have the transport and other infrastructure is not in place to support a dynamic and growing population.”
