$28 BILLION PROMISED
State Premier Gladys Berejiklian will honour the full $28 billion in election promises over the next four years.
The Premier was re-elected while part of Sydney’s CBD was an obstacle course of light rail construction.
She assured voters that “New South Wales could have it all”. Immediately afer re-election the demolition of the Sydney Football Stadium (SFS) went ahead with no political ramifications for the SCG Trust board.
The new 45,000-seat stadium will replace the SFS, while Stadium Australia at Olympic Park will b refurbished.
The Government claims the total cost of the arena projects will be about $2 billion.
Meanwhile the Metro West project - a new rail line from Parramatta to the CBD to be completed in 2020 - will cost $18 billion.
A train line will also run from St Marys to the new Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek.
The Government will start construction of the Northern Beaches Tunnel in 2020, which will cut travel time between Brookvale and the CBD by 27 minutes.
The tunnel is due to open in 2026.
Some $14 billion will be spent building the Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link plus $2.6 billion for the first stage of the F6 extension from Arncliffe to Kogarah.
