The telegraph is not “naive” in “thinking” road building (you can’t call it “improvements”) will solve problems. Like the rest of the newscorp arserags they have a big investment in car classifieds and therefore promote the sale and use of cars, whatever the social and environmental costs. It shamelessly promoted and shilled for westconnex while slandering and ridiculing its opponents.
As for Surry Hills, what they obviously regard as the destination is Holt St, 2 blocks from Central station. It’s where the newscorp building, the Holt St Whorehouse, is located.
While it is probably true that 7, 9 (which is dragging the SMH into being even more of a tabloid bullshit mill) and the telegraph is where a lot of gormless bogans have their ignorance reinforced, their power is waning. As the Victorian state election revealed less and less people are being influenced by the hysterical racist fearmongering and other lies churned out by these fake news trolling exercises.
And, as we’ve seen from their response to the Pell verdict, they love brutal boy raping pederasts.

I read it as an article that highlights the many downsides of driving more than anything, but anybody is welcome to read whatever conspiracy theory they want into it. I do think though that the Telegraph is still rather naive in thinking that road improvements will "solve" congestion problems - but at least they are advocating for public transport as well.
> As for Marrickville-Surry Hills, there is no train to Surry Hills except on the western fringe. Unfortunately they don't define where they mean in Surry Hills but it looks to be somewhere deep within the suburb, therefore they've chosen a bus journey. This should shape up much better as a train+tram journey when CSELR opens. It also says in the article that the commute from Marrickville to the city is faster by public transport.
