– ANTHONYALBANESE (ABC TV political satire series) Utopia. The second airport needs a rail line to be operating from day one.”
Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown said it was “great to see some breakthrough” on the topic.
“We have been talking to the community and conducting a rail survey – they are telling us it is a vital part of the infrastructure required for the airport,” Cr McKeown said.
Despite speculation the network will be connected to other parts of the Penrith region, such as St Marys, the mayor confirmed the council wanted to see a secure link in Penrith CBD.
