Mark Latham MLC - Supports call for extension of the South West Rail Link


Jul 3, 2021 —


Good Afternoon Fellow Residents, Commuters and Petition Supporters


In June I attended a function hosted by the Ingleburn Business Chamber at which Mark Latham MLC was the Guest Speaker and spoke about a number of topics impacting on NSW and South Western Sydney including the South Western Rail Link.


Mr Latham spoke about the Cost Benefits of extending the Heavy Rail line from Leppington Station to the Western Sydney Airport and the need for a fast rail link between the existing airports and the new airport which I have also spoken about over the last couple of years.

Latham slams ‘shameful’ decision on new airport rail link


Article written by Eric Kontos on Saturday, 5 June, 2021


Mark Latham has accused the State Government of making a “shameful’’ decision on the preferred rail link option to Western Sydney Airport at Badgerys Creek.


The One Nation MP in the upper house of the NSW parliament told an Ingleburn business chamber luncheon yesterday that for reasons best known to themselves the Berejiklian Government chose the worst of three options.


“It’s a shame there hasn’t been more media coverage on this but through Freedom of Information in the parliament we learned that a cost benefit analysis was prepared on three rail link options for the new airport,’’ Mr Latham said.


Mr Latham said this decision presents a real problem for the South Western Sydney region because it would miss out on the tremendous economic benefits of having an airport in its backyard.


Mr Latham urged everyone in the room to use every opportunity to lobby for the Leppington rail extension to the new airport.


“It’s a no brainer and I will continue to advocate for Leppington to reap the economic rewards for South Western Sydney,’’ Mr Latham said.

There is lots to be done in 2021 and remember that as a TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More


While Covid and the Lockdowns have delayed work on the Paper Petition I will continue to lobby for the extension of the South West Rail link from Leppington Station to the new western Sydney Airport not only for the benefit of Liverpool Residents but for Residents of Sydney, Wollongong and the Southern Highlands who are currently being denied rail access to the New western Sydney Airport and will keep you informed of any further developments as they come to hand.

Yours Sincerely
