Minister not fazed by rail clearways cost increase

Sydney Morning Herald, 30 October 2009

THE cost of the State Government's rail clearways program, designed to separate the network into distinct lines and minimise delays across the system, has blown out by more than $800 million, documents reveal. The documents, obtained by the Opposition under freedom of information legislation, show the total cost of the clearways program is now $1.888 billion, up from the original estimate of $1.018 billion.
