NSW One Nation Leader Mark Latham says the Korean-made fleet of trains was “never going to be delivered on time”.
The new intercity trains were set to be opened and run in 2019 but suffered major setbacks, with the project costing $3.3 billion, almost $1 billion over budget.
Documents released to parliament revealed the Korean facility which made the trains did not have the capacity to build rail cars fast enough to meet the original schedule.
“Everywhere you look, there’s a transport problem,” Mr Latham told Sky News host James Morrow.
“This government has said it has a record on infrastructure, but at the moment, it’s a record of cost blowouts.
“There are problems everywhere you look … and the people of New South Wales obviously deserve a lot better.”
