Hi all,
I decided to give this go, as Chicken Fish's Victorian one (see here: http://www.wheelsonsteel.com.au/showthread.php?tid=5181) has taken off.
With the NSW election in March, what are the public transport policies? I know both will extend the Light Rail (about time I say!!). I think we may see a hung parliament as well. I'd prefer it if the Greens had the transport ministry, as we need a fresh faced, pro rail/PT person. Please post your own ideas also, as I'd like to hear them too. I believe more tolls should be built, with the money raised spent on Public transport.

My ideas
A wider Light Rail system
Trolleybuses
Solar powered ferries
High Speed Rail (Syd-Melbourne/Newcastle and Bris)
Curve removal on the Main south line
Truck bans
Reopen close lines (i.e. Casino/Murwillumbah)
Retain rail to Newcastle

I have more, but will post them later.

What are the parties' policies?

Cheers,
Ben
Can someone edit my above post so it's not a public poll?

Thanks,
Ben
Done. A yes / no poll tells you nothing, and is normally in the realm of main stream media bogan opinion pieces.
