    Why is that even needed?

    I don't know for sure but I think the ramp is part of the redevelopment of Carter Street (Lidcombe) area. It is a run down industrial area now.

    Traffic near DFO (Homebush) roundabout is horrible. I guess this off ramp will ease that traffic. Also better connect the Olympic Park as well.

    Lets hope so.

    The traffic's so bad at DFO, that by the time anybody tries to get to a garden show, all the plants are dead...

    Not to mention the roundabout of death, imported from the remnants of Mad Mad Beyond Thunderdome, only Tina's not there to entertain.

    Great link. But its annoying that when you click on any of the icons, the map zooms out again.
