    OH I forgot to mention below, The alternate routes to the M4 can not handle the extra load of people who want to avoid the M4. So the story that there are viable alternate routes is a lie. They are already fully clogged roads. Parramatta road cannot even handle the traffic at midnight when the freeway has been closed for upgrades.

    Stuart Ayres belief that Labour is being hypocritical opposing the M4 toll, when Labour supported the M7/M2 /Lane cove Tunnel does not stand. As the M7/M2 and Lane cove tunnel were new roads and optional to travel on. Extending the M5 Toll for 34 is an unjustified weak move. If Westconnex cannot be funded on its own merit, then don’t build it . The M4 road is an existing free road with the plan to tax it at an unreasonable amount. The suggestion that people not willing to pay can take alternate routes is akin to bullying. I have no problems with whatever toll they want to charge on the new Westconnex tunnels.

    There was meant to be a debate about the M4 Tollway. The debate was cut short so this was not a debate. I demand that the debate be rescheduled at the earliest time possible with ample time scheduled to complete the debate. I wish for MrAyres to convince the public why charging 20 billion dollars over 40 years for a 1/2 billion dollar M4 upgrade is good for the community and why we are being charged a toll at all for this upgrade when our taxes pay for roads. If he cannot convince us, then it is his job to do what the community wants and at minimum drop the toll once the M4 widening has been paid for and charge an appropriate toll on the genuine new sections of road in the Westconnex system. It is very simple. Thank you, Paul Topic

    Hi Trish,

    Has anybody noticed the the proposed new Intercity trains have a suburban floor plan? Instead of inner doors , as on the V sets, the stairs go straight to the entry door area, meaning that, every few minutes on winter mornings, the heat will be lost when the doors open.
    It has been said that station platforms would need to be shaved back due to the new trains being wider, beyond Springwood, all stations except Mount Vic have island platforms, so they would only need the tracks to be slewed over a bit- but it doesn’t make up for getting the wrong trains!

    Cheers,
    Ian Grant.

    The whole county knows that the Blue Mountains is cancelling Anzac day marchs because of money. The whole country know that our government and council think so little of the men and women that gave there all so we could have this wonderful life in a free country.

    Very disappointed with NSW Labor preferncing the Shooters party at the Orange by-election.

    I was happy when I heard about the ban on Greyhound racing. I do understand the pressure for the government to reinstate this sport. My message is to ask you to ensure that Greyhounds do not suffer again. I would like to see the sport banned (and horse racing), but realise this will not happen again. Please please ensure the welfare of Greyhounds. Impose severe penalties, including prison sentences, for any neglect, abuse or live baiting. Kind regards.

    Dear Trish, I too would encourage you to tell Mr Foley not to support the greyhound industry. this is not the issue to differentiate labor from the liberals. Greyhound racing is so wrong on so many levels

    Trish, please tell Luke Foley he’s wrong not to support the total ban on greyhound racing. Its an industry beyond reform and a lot of people hope the ban spreads nationally.
