Region. O'Farrell's funding effort

The South West Rail Link or a second harbour crossing would be funded by the federal government and the NSW government would approve the Epping to Parramatta Rail Link under a compromise deal put forward by Premier Barry O'Farrell, according to the Daily Telegraph. The deal has been put on the table in an attempt to cut the impasse on rail infrastructure funding, senior state government sources confirmed. As negotiations continue over the state-backed $7 billion North West Rail Link and the Gillard-backed $3 billion Epping to Parramatta project, Mr O'Farrell suggested Ms Gillard fund the southwest link, which would serve Labor electorates, the paper said.
