Ashfield, Leichhardt, Marrickville and Sydney Coun- cils are backing the $50 million light rail extension along the Rozelle goods line from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill via Leichhardt and Summer Hill. With no firm commitment from State Government for the project, the councils are con- cerned that the land remains in public hands. Leichhardt Mayor Jamie Parker said because the State Government-owned land was in a gully it would be easy for developers to build flats or shops that complied with height restrictions. The RTA also had its sights on the land to dump earth removed from tunnelling a metro line, he said. ''In the short-term we have to ensure that this land is dedi- cated for public transport, not sold to developers or taken by the RTA and then we can work out the issues,'' Cr Parker said. ''It's public land in a prime location and there's potential for development for this site.'' State Transport Minister David Campbell told a recent budget estimates hearing at State Parliament: ''We should move to get that (freight line) back from Australian Rail Corp to use as a potential corridor for light rail.'' But he declined to comment on whether he backed the light rail extension. Cr Parker said the councils were united in their support for the light rail extension. ''The government has so many divisive proposals, whether it's the M4 East or the Iron Cove Bridge,'' he said. ''This shows across all coun- cils this is supported. ''They talk about missing links in freeways but no one ever talks about it in light rail or surface rail. ''The next step is this missing portion.'' Today Chance of Storm.
