Since when is Camden in the southern highlands and Campbelltown and Macarthur already have an electrified rail service. More importantly since when did Goulburn become a suburb of Sydney? Rail clearly doesn't affect the election results in Goulburn because Goulburn has had the same rail service regardless of which party was in power.
Hume is a federal seat that covers a lot of area and is not a state seat. It is currently held by the liberals and not the nationals with a 20% margin in the 2 party preferred vote. The state seat of wollondilly has a larger margin in favour of the liberals of 34%.
As for the BS I have made up. What BS would that be? Most of the BS is coming from yourself. A 40+ year plan was produced and it states that electrification to these areas is the plan. Nothing about how in 40 years time we will have gone through at least 10 elections and who knows how many premiers with different agendas.
The SW growth area in Sydney is in the leppington to narrelan area. This is not anywhere near Picton or Goulburn. As for the ARTC. I would like to see you try to cancel a lease with a federal government body whose bosses control most of your purse strings.
This is the problem when you comment on things you don't understand...
Camden commuters are currently forced to drive/bus to Campbelltown. That in turn causes massive congestion on Narellan Rd. I've tried to explain that you before but you just don't listen...
A new road, Spring Farm Rd, is being constructed from east of Narellan through to Glenlee (where it connects to the Hume), and then on to Appin Rd. It will provide not just a direct link from Camden & Appin to the Hume but also to Menangle Park. It would make the time & distance for Appin & Camden commuters to get to a train far more direct and ease congestion on Narellan Rd. All it needs is electrification extended to Menangle Park.
Camden, Appin, Wilton, and Picton are all interconnected in this issue. They all have the same common issue AND solution.
Not even going to get into your political dribble. Suffice to say I've been around the political traps in this area far more than you have... Mate you are a dead set dribbler. I've personally seen these electorates swing on far less sensitive issues than this. Only a fool would think that a lease between an agency & a state couldn't be renegotiated VERY easily. The ARTC is a CROWN owned statutory corporation- it cannot sue the Crown (in the State of NSW). Nearly 40 years of dealing between state entities has taught me the law a little more deeply than you.
And they control the purse strings? Bahahaha... mate you are a jackass. They control the purse strings. The states have the GST revenue... You've been smoking some rail industry wacky tabaccy...
