Relief for Inner West residents as M4 Tunnel fails to get funding
The extension of the M4, including a tunnel under the Marrickville area has failed to receive funding in the 2009/10 federal budget.
This is good news for residents of the Inner West. It means that polluting exhaust stacks and increased traffic congestion has been avoided in the immediate future.
The state governmentand RTA should permanetly throw the idea of of extending the M4 into the garbage bin and concentrate on improving Sydney’s ailing public transport and rail freight system to get people out of cars and onto buses, trams and trains.
