SMH reports the plan will committ to construction of a light rail link from Central to Randwick before the next election.

The State Government's confirmed a new light rail line will be built through central Sydney, meaning cars are banned from 40 per cent of George Street, as Derek Peterson reveals.
Sydney will get a new light rail line, and better road-access to the airport - but part of George St will be closed, under the State Governments latest transport master plan. Tim Webster & Tracey Spicer discuss the master plans with Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore.
A $1.6 billion light rail line will be built between Circular Quay and Sydney's eastern suburbs, reducing congestion in the city, according to NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell, who speaks with Tracey & Tim about his transport plans.
KEY FACTS ABOUT SYDNEY's LIGHT RAIL PLAN:
$1.6 billion estimated cost
