Sydney Fish Market to get a $250 million makeover on new Blackwattle Bay site - The Sydney Morning Herald

 The NSW government has unveiled plans for a significant redesign of Blackwattle Bay, shifting the Sydney Fish Market to a new home, displacing heavy industry and opening new tracts of inner-city homes and shops.

The $250 million transformation, announced on Sunday by Premier Gladys Berejiklian, would house the fish market in a new Danish-designed building next to its current spot, backing onto Wentworth Park on the south side of the bay.

Clover Moore has suffered a major blow after her hand-picked deputy, prominent doctor Kerryn Phelps, quit the Lord Mayor's team of independents on Monday night, blaming a lack of transparency.

Cr Phelps, elected to council as the first on the ticket of Cr Moore's independent group last year, will remain on council but will no longer be part of what is, in effect, the Lord Mayor's party.

Wollongong-Sydney train tunnel could slash commute, report to ... - ABC Online

A new railway tunnel would shave 22 minutes off a train trip from Wollongong to Sydney, confidential documents reveal.

Key points:

  • It is estimated about 20,000 people commute from Wollongong to Sydney daily
  • The proposed rail tunnel from Thirroul to Waterfall would slash journey times to about an hour
  • Today, the journey takes more than 90 minutes

The ABC has seen a plan prepared for the New South Wales Government showing the commute would be cut from about an hour and a half, to 66 minutes.

The cabinet-in-confidence proposal estimates a tunnel built from Thirroul to Waterfall would cost $3.6 billion, a fraction of what it would cost to build the F6 motorway.

In last week's state budget, the Berejiklian Government allocated $15 million for planning of the F6 extension.

NSW Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance ruled out the rail...

Southwest Sydney overlooked in NSW State Budget 2017 - dailytelegraph.com.au

Southwest Sydney MPs have slammed the State Government’s lack of funding for the region in the new Budget.

Prospect state Labor MP Hugh McDermott said last week’s Budget let down families living in the west.

“I’m devastated Fairfield Hospital was neglected in the NSW Budget,” Dr McDermott said.

“Our children’s health deserves better and the hospital needs to be properly funded.”

Dr McDermott also said demountable classrooms were not a suitable solution for growing student numbers at several local schools.

Prospect state Labor MP Hugh McDermott.

“Our schools are in crisis due to soaring enrolments, overcrowding and million dollar maintenance backlogs,” Dr McDermott said.

“Smithfield Public School, Prairiewood High School, Bossley Park High School and many others continue to face significant challenges due to underfunding.”

Fairfield state Labor MP Guy Zangari said the State...

Rain delays start of sugar cane harvest in New South Wales by two weeks - ABC Online

The start of this year's cane harvest in New South Wales has been delayed by at least two weeks due to heavy rain.

Harvest in the Clarence Valley was due to commence on June 14, but wet weather has held harvesters back.

NSW Canegrowers' Association president, Ross Farlow, said the lower Clarence has had a substantial rain event.

"Around 270–300mm of rain and we've now got these ongoing showers that are keeping conditions very, very wet," he said.

"We need to burn our crops still at this stage and there's just no way that we would get burns.

"We're able to harvest our cane under quite wet conditions but we've also got farm tracks and crossings and the farm infrastructure that we have to try to look after as well.

"There's no point burning the crops and harvesting it if we can't get it to our cane delivery pads, so it's a whole harvest operation we have to take into consideration."

Origin legend Adam MacDougall reveals inside secrets - NEWS.com.au

State Of Origin: New South Wales have finalised preparations ahead of game two at ANZ Stadium.

Adam MacDougall during his time with the Newcastle Knights.

ADAM MacDougall is an NRL legend who played 195 NRL games, 11 times for Australia and 11 State of Origin matches for New South Wales. Here he reveals what goes on behind the scenes of a State of Origin blockbuster.

“IT’S 80 MINUTES OF ABSOLUTE BRUTALITY”

It’s 80 minutes of absolute brutality, a match like no other, where the only things heavier than the weight of an entire state on your shoulders are your legs as you force them to complete one more hit-up, one more tackle, one more sprint for the try line.

And while any Origin game is huge, no matter which dressing room you’re walking into, there’s nothing quite like the combination of nerves and excitement that will be washing over the NSW squad in the lead-up...

Tommy Raudonikis.

CATTLEDOG! Blues legend Tommy Raudonikis has come out swinging following New South Wales’ defeat to Queensland in game two of the State of Origin series.

New South Wales looked like they had one hand on the Origin shield, when they led Queensland at halftime, but a stirring second half display saw the Maroons steal a stunning 18-16 win to force a decider in Brisbane.

Raudonikis blasted the Blues for their attitude, saying Laurie Daley’s men lacked the killer instinct and were simply out-enthused by the Maroons — something the former New South Wales great says continues to separate the two sides in the Origin arena.

“I couldn’t believe New South Wales got beaten,” Raudonikis said on Nine’s The Footy Show.

“Did not...

Brad Fittler reveals what New South Wales lacked - NEWS.com.au

State of Origin: The writing was on the wall but we didnt want to believe it - Johnathan Thurston will miss Origin Three - and is out for the remainder of the season.

Blues players look dejected after the first Maroons try during game two.

NSW legend Brad Fittler has accused Laurie Daley’s Blues of lacking a killer instinct after failing to close out the State of Origin series in game two.

Fittler had a blunt appraisal of NSW after they gave up a 16-6 halftime lead on home soil and will be under pressure to win next month’s decider in Brisbane.

He said they failed to demonstrate a hard edge, pointing to the way they had shown sympathy for rookie Queensland prop Tim Glasby, who was savaged in the Sydney press, and prop Andrew Fifita’s complaining about the Maroons’ sledging.

Primary school playgrounds in New South Wales transforming the learning environment - ABC Online

A group of children stand in a group playing with toy cars.

Over recent decades, the way school students have been taught has evolved.

From chalkboards and heavy books of years past, to the use of laptops and tablets today, the education system has invariably moved with the technological times.

Playgrounds are another area experiencing change, with many schools around the country diversifying their grassed ovals and asphalt into unique outdoor learning spaces.

In the New South Wales city of Newcastle, schools in both the public and Catholic systems are making changes, and are reporting big successes.

But what is driving the change?

Rohrer parts ways with NSW Blues - cricket.com.au

Stalwart batsman Ben Rohrer's decade-long career with the Blues is over after Cricket New South Wales confirmed the veteran would not be offered a contract for coming season.

The 36-year-old will continue to ply his trade with KFC Big Bash League side Sydney Thunder, while he's also been appointed as Tasmania's new State Talent Manager, CNSW confirmed on Monday.

Rohrer made his Sheffield Shield debut in 2007, and hit a century in his maiden first-class outing with 163 against Tasmania.

Producers in far-west NSW warned to be on the lookout for footrot, with one case confirmed - ABC Online

Authorities are working to stop the spread of footrot in far-west New South Wales, after confirming one case in the region.

Western Local Land Services (LLS) declined to specify the affected area, but said it was working with the producer involved to limit the impact.

It said the affected area was in the southern part of the far west.

Western LLS vet Charlotte Cavanagh said landholders in the region must be on the lookout for symptoms in their stock.

"Benign or virulent footrot starts as an inflammation between the claws of the feet," Ms Cavanagh said.

"It can then progress quite quickly, and in virulent footrot, under the right environmental conditions, it can progress within a couple of weeks to severe underrunning of the hoof.

"So you'd obviously expect to see lame sheep."

The organisation said it had been more than 10 years since the far west last saw a case of footrot.

The disease is...
