    But will it happen? And if so by when? Guess it will take a very very long time

    It makes sense, land is cheap(er) out west, Camden region will have very high population growth for years to come

    These people will need access to jobs, which helps rather than them doing rubbish jobs or be on welfare

    Only downside is that crims will have easy public transport access to the wealthy suburbs. Read the crime sections of your local rag for modus operandi.

    Other than that I'm all for it.

    The people in suburbs northward up Mount Druitt / Colyton should be given access to the reliable and efficient means of public tranport e.g. trains, without which that (notorious) pocket of Western Sydney would remained forever disadvantaged. As to crime movement, a thug can already set on a Western line direct train there to get off at lower north shore suburbs...

    It was on for the airport, and some property compulsory aquired for the rail corridor south of Badgery's Creek, with St Marys as the transit hub.

    Then it was shelved as hey, airports dont need fast rail links, we will just run buses on the M4 and M5, 2 of the most congested roads in the country. What could possibly go wrong?

    Everyone in Western Sydney planning on getting a job at Badgery's Creek?

    In my opinion create a chart of priority infrastructure, so this one can be put at the bottom where it belongs.

    Crims don't need public transport to get to get to wealthy suburbs. Public transport sucks. They think train stations were built for the purpose of parking and then knocking off cars.

    Then its onto the M7 M2 etc and they're there.
