1 billion/km roadway. It's even more expensive than the most expensive section of the Eastern Busway that came in at $465 million/km.

Roads and public transport projects were not mutually exclusive.

The 36-kilometre Rouse Hill to Chatswood rail upgrade is much cheaper than the Beaches Link at $8 billion, around $230 million per kilometre.

An internal Transport for NSW memo released under the Government Information (Public Access) Act refers to a cabinet directive not to consider public transport alternatives when assessing tollway projects. The memo says the Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link was not benchmarked against a public transport alternative.
