Liberal MP demands ‘fair compensation’ for dislocated Western Sydney landowners
A fellow Liberal MP is lobbying Transport Minister Andrew Constance to cut a better deal for landowners affected by the Western Sydney Airport train line.
Mulgoa MP Tanya Davies told Jim the current offering is “nowhere near enough”, leaving residents worse off and unable to relocate locally.

“The government ought to come to the table, and give the residents the compensation that they need.”
