Why wouldn't you ask to see the business case before making a snap politically based decision?
As I say the Super Fund usually knows what it's doing, but it's got a new CE and from that report actually building infrastructure is new to it, and light rail is a graveyard, and probably sunset industry (Herald report is adjacent to a report on Uber helicopters which of course might itself be a croc, but trams is literally 1800s tech.). Re the business case, I'm sure it stacks up just fine, though I'd be keen to see the risk analysis and mitigation. The Edinburgh business case would have been awesome of course, and I'm sure no-one thought George St would be a fenced-off trench indefinitely while the NSW government got sued for $1Bn.
