expansion plan

SYDNEY – A four- lane road could be built beneath the world renowned Sydney Harbour Bridge under a plan to ease the city’s traffic and train congestion.

The proposal would also see one car lane removed from the top deck to make way for a second rail line.

Strickland inquest call

BRISBANE – Three children of former Olympian Shirley Strickland de la Hunty have called for an inquest into the circumstances surrounding her death.

The West Australian Coroner’s office has received a submission from Phillip, Matthew and Barbara de la Hunty, asking for the inquest, despite the coroner previously ruling the athlete had died of natural causes.

The former Olympic track-and-field champion was found dead in her Applecross home in Perth in February last year. Barbara de la Hunty does not believe her mother was a victim of foul play, but hopes an inquest will bring clarity.
