What Did the Premier Know? Greens Move to Force Government to Release Secret Light Rail Documents

Greens NSW MP and Transport Spokesperson, Dr Mehreen Faruqi MLC, will today introduce a motion to force the government to release documents that will show whether Premier Gladys Berejiklian was dishonest to the public on a $549 million blowout in the cost of the Sydney light rail project.

Today, the Sydney Morning Herald revealed that the Premier was given details of the $549 million blowout weeks before, as transport minister, she issued information saying the cost blowout was due to scope changes. But the government is refusing to release these documents.
