It would be great to see Balmain financial again and represented in the state cup. I know it may cause issues with where WT's contracted players would play but I'm loving seeing my old magpies back and playing on TV.
I suspect it would be the same situation when Balmain got the contracted players and Wests got the scraps. Is it really worth seeing them back if they are going to get pummelled every week due to fielding a pub team?
You don't have to watch them.

Maybe Darcy gets some kick backs if the dive site happens. Having lived near one before it was horrible, dust over everything and constant noise for years.
Well that sounds deserving for the NIMBYS that destroyed a good development from day one .

I agree, give them the west connex, hopefully the only entry or exit high enough for a semi.

The area is so pretentious now it makes me sick. Every time I read a quote from Byrne I'm reminded of a cockroach. Will say or do anything to survive.

What is a dive site.?
A tunnel entrance?
Vic Rd is busy enough as it is I don't see the difference a declining off ramp will make

Don't think it's the traffic so much ink, but the dust pollution. There's a lot of outdoor cafes very close by.

Yep the dust was the main problem couldn't leave the windows open for about 3 years or the house would be full of it, car looked like it had not been cleaned in months after 3 days.

Windy days I could taste the dirt. Only reason I stayed was they kept dropping the rent price every year.

Obviously I'd like to see the development go ahead but it will be poetic if after years of sulking about a high rise they wind up with a dive site. Deserving of such knobs.

Oh! how true CB.

Want the Club to go ahead but....

Would also love to see the Latte's full of dusk.

It would definitely be KFTW (i.e. Karma for the Wankers).

More importantly how much will Benny recoup out of his $2 investment?

Hopefully the back door can be named after him.

SMH released the cabinet report for the Western Harbour Tunnel

Image

Cons.
- the site will be used potentially up to 2025

Pros.
- reduces the cost of the project and disruption during construction
- the site will be left remediated and ready for development afterwards. That's actually really attractive. Basically the Government will pay for digging the hole and laying the foundations.

It was $1 and the debts wasn't it? But even that would have been around $20 million?

I think Snake has mis-heard the figures. SMH are reporting that the State Govt proposes to spend $560M total on two new road projects - the "Western Harbour Tunnel" between Rozelle and North Sydney, and "Beaches Link" motorway between Cammeray and Seaforth and Balgowlah.

That puts them at about $250M each, give or take.

The Western Harbour Tunnel is the one to use the League Club.

You should all email Darcy Byrne from the Inner-west council and remind him that his constant objections of the new club being built has now meant a dive site with trucks,dust and noise will be there instead of a small club,appartments and a few shops...great work

Yeah you’re right. The debts were also part of the deal.

Byrne was also part of the segment ..he stated if the government does buy the site the Tigers will be dead forever ....news flash you already killed the Tigers with your greenie mates by not approving a modern development in a run down town area.
What goes around ,instead of a rejuvenated area of modern buildings and shopping area you can have the smells and hundreds of trucks ..dust and noise every day for years to come when the hole in the ground appears .
Well done Mr Byrne just another Neville nobody ! who has represented his electorate to getting the worst possible out come!
