Crows Nest: ‘Change of tack’
Or change of tactics?

Sydney Metro was adamant. The metro station and the Over[Station]Development must be ‘integrated’.

We think that ‘integration’ suited Sydney Metro’s purposes. If it’s one ‘integrated’ project, Sydney Metro can stretch the station’s fast-track planning to the private towers above it.

Whatever the case, Sydney Metro has announced that the project is no longer ‘integrated’, in what the SMH called a change of tack due to intense community opposition.

In short, this was a major community victory. Read about it here – and also read about the battles to come.
