Parramatta. Agreement on $2.1b rail link

The federal and state governments are expected to sign an agreement soon for the funding of the controversial $2.1 billion Epping to Parramatta rail link. The Liberals have stated their aim to renegotiate the agreement, should they win the March state election, to fund the north-west and south-west rail links. Prime Minister Julia Gillard said that’s not on. Pre-construction work is scheduled to begin some time this year
