Rail best for northern beaches

Brisbane Times Sunday, 5 March 2017
Rail best for northern beachesThe State Government is reportedly planning a road tunnel to improve city access for northern beaches motorists ("Berejiklian hints at finally fixing notorious traffic snarl", March 4-5).   While applauding the willingness to address access to the rest of Sydney from this rapidly-growing area, I wonder if expansion of the road network is the best solution? Simultaneously, a new harbour crossing is also being planned for Sydney's metro rail network.  Why not build into this metro line the capability of expansion into a branch to the northern beaches?  Crossing the harbour has always been a bottleneck for previous rail proposals, so here is an opportunity to take full advantage of a major piece of infrastructure, and also slow down Sydney's growing dependence on private cars using increasingly clogged roads.
