Fantasy Rail

Another week, another transport plan from the State government, this time its a light rail system for Sydney. I have lost count of how many transport plans have been released, never to see anything happen. Remember the North West was supposed to get a heavy rail line a few years ago. Now the plan is for a Metro system. That has been criticized as unworkable but apparently the government's internal experts know better. These are the same internal experts who have given us CityRail, hospitals, school systems etc. And oh, yes, before I forget, I'm still waiting for my train from Parramatta to Chatswood.

We shouldn't be surprised by any of this, you see Mr Iemma is very busy. Busy trying to save his job. The sad part of this is that all his party replacements are just as mediocre. The Opposition are hardly wonder boys and girls but we could at least hope of a shakeup. However the next election is three years away. Its going to be a long three years.
