$1b plan for tunnel and new Spit Bridge - National - smh.com.au

$1b plan for tunnel and new Spit Bridge - National - smh.com.au
A $1 BILLION-plus tunnel linking the Warringah Freeway to a new, elevated Spit Bridge is being discussed by Macquarie Bank and State Government officials in an attempt to solve the perennial problem of traffic congestion on the North Shore.

Backers say it could be funded mostly by the private sector, with a toll to recoup costs.
It's quite possibly the last thing the area needs... More roads & tolls.

Why not build a 'metro style' train that hooks up with North Sydney station?? Now that would be a sensible proposal...

But then again, it's yet another 'proposal' that will be presented and then in 6 months, it will be scrapped.
