Delaying the release of a review into Sydney’s tolls after the March 25 state election is a political decision, says the member for Campbelltown, Greg Warren.

NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet confirmed this week the Liberals’ toll review will not be released before the election.

It means there is no chance of any toll relief for motorists in South Western Sydney and the rest of Western Sydney until at least the end of March.

Mr Warren points out that the review was announced in April 2021 and was originally due to be released in September 2022.

The deadline was then pushed back until before Christmas 2022 and then this week, delayed again until after March.

Mr Warren, who is Western Sydney spokesman for the Labor opposition says it’s not good enough.

“The NSW Liberals have treated residents in Western and South Western Sydney like cash cows – introducing new tax after new tax,” he said.

“The new toll on the old M5 East Motorway is just one example of the NSW Liberals distain for these growing regions of Sydney.

“The Premier has now conveniently delayed releasing the review until after the March 25 NSW election.

“The NSW Liberals’ decision to delay releasing the review is a political decision, not one that was made in the best interests of our region.”
