NSW 2150 Another rail plan on offer KIM SHAW state parliament THE latest rail plan from Prem- ier Nathan Rees is for a CBD metro linking Central with Rozelle via Pyrmont -- stopping short of Drummoyne. Mr Rees called the plan a ''first stage'' in a web of metro lines to Macquarie Park, Sydney's west and at a later stage to the north and southern suburbs. Co-ordinator-General David Richmond said the Federal Gov- ernment had been asked to come up with funding for the CBD metro, estimated at $4 billion. Construction was expected by 2010 and completion in three to four years, Mr Richmond said. Mr Rees described the project as a way to enhance Sydney's status as an international financial hub, with its con- nection to the Barangaroo de- velopment, Wynyard, Town Hall and Martin Place. ''We have to get people off roads and on to public trans- port,'' Mr Rees said. Mr Rees said if the project got the tick, it would mean the future of Sydney's rail transport was in metro, not heavy rail. Opposition Leader Barry O'Farrell said Mr Rees must have devised the plan on the back of a lemon squash coaster. Greens MLC Lee Rhiannon said the money would be better spent completing heavy rail lines and extending existing light rail lines. Ms Rhiannon said tunnelling under city office blocks, steep gradients and across Darling Harbour would present a real challenge. Lord Mayor Clover Moore has advocated an above-ground light rail line through the CBD connecting to Barangaroo for many years. 39 42 30 Index 8 Police Beat 15 Pet of the Week 17 Kooka Kids Club 20 Opinion 23 One Degree 26 Alive 27 What'sOn 35 Home Living 47 TV guide 46 Sport Today Early shower.

Top Temp: 24C Experts appeals for light INNER West transport experts have worked out how to save Premier Nathan Rees $3.95 billion -- build a light rail and not a metro. Mr Rees has unveiled plans for a $4 billion metro from Central Station to Rozelle by 2015. But Eco Transit, UTS transport planners and Leichhardt Council say he should spend $50 million ex- tending light rail from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill instead.
