Region. No joy for commuters

There was little joy for Sydney public transport users in the federal government’s Budget, according to The Daily Telegraph. The government stood by its $2.1 billion investment in the Epping to Parramatta Rail Link. The North West Rail Link did not rate a mention, suggesting Premier Barry O’Farrell is a long way off convincing Prime Minister Julia Gillard to authorize investment body, Infrastructure Australia, to help fund the project, the paper said.
