Thefeasibility of a fast train connecting the Sydney and Parramatta CBDs and the new airport were explored at the15 minutes – Fast Tracking the Dual CBDsforum on Friday, whereAurecon/Deloitte unveiled theirdiscussion paper findings.

Parramatta Council and the Sydney Business Chamber hosted the forum at Rosehill Gardens.

There are four options for the 15 minute fast train route between Parramatta and the CBD, which would take half the time it does now.

‘’This is more than just a thing, it’s a plan that’spotentially game changing,’’ Parramatta lord mayor Paul Garrard told the forum.

‘’We need both the governments and private sector to take a leap of faith to actually make it happen.’’

A linkfrom Parramatta to the Western Sydney Airport is proposed to go via the southern Liverpool LGA or the Blacktown LGA and would take 25 minutes.

TheBlacktown LGA route would be more direct and would connect to emerging and existing tourist attractions, including thenew Western Sydney zoo.

Bothlinksare unfunded andforum speakers said the CBDlink was more viable than the airport.

Federal ministers Paul Fletcher and Angus Taylor suggested the rail links could be funded through value capturing.

The idea didn’t go down well with City of Sydney lord mayor Clover Moore, who suggested governments instead redistribute the money allocated to Westconnex which was diverted from public transport funding.

‘’Sydney does well in global city rankings but gets marked down for poor public transport,’’ she said.

‘’The answer isn’t building more toll roads.’’

Blacktown mayor Stephen Bali renewed calls for a more integrated transport network after wealerted to him to thereport.

‘’It’s nicepeople have got imagination,’’ he said.

‘’But they should stop sugarcoating it and put their money where their mouth is.’’

‘’An airportlink from Parramatta is ridiculous. Existing stations like Doonside, Rooty Hill, Pendle Hilland Riverstone don’t have lifts.’’

Cr Bali did support a proposedstation at the M4/M7 interchange if the Blacktown LGA route goes ahead.

‘’Blacktown International Sportsparkgets more use than Homebush,’’ he said.

Hesaid the CBDfast rail link should be extended.

‘’There’s more to western Sydney than just Parramatta,’’ Cr Balisaid

‘’Parramatta is the eastern suburbs of the west. Afast train should stop at Strathfield, Parramatta, Blacktown and Penrith.’’

WSROCcalled for careful consideration of route options.

“A very fast train from Parramatta to Badgerys Creek is a great concept, but if the route doesn’t have stations and stops along the way there will be very little benefit for commuters and businesses between these two locations,” president Tony Hadchiti said.
