Minister wanted to dump light rail – The Australian

ANDREW CLENNELL THE AUSTRALIAN 12:00AM October 19, 2017

Soon after he became NSW Transport Minister, Andrew Constance asked bureaucrats what it would cost to dump Premier Gladys Berejiklian’s controversial $2.1 billion CBD light rail project and whether abandoning it was possible.

Bureaucrats told him and his senior staff the contract signed by then transport minister Ms Berejiklian was watertight and cancelling it would create “sovereign risk” and be too expensive, The Australian has learnt.

Some of the residents are suffering severe mental health issues, there are elderly residents, parents with young children, and students studying for the HSC.
