Region. Rail links not a priority

Sydney's northwest and southwest rail links are not on the current priority list, although IA is likely to consider the projects for next year's report. A spokesman for Premier Barry O'Farrell said these projects should be at the top of the list for commonwealth funding.

The people of NSW made it clear at the March election that they want these lines built and the federal government needs to listen" the spokesman said
