Re: Sydney Metro - Tallawong to Bankstown

All stations should be named with a weighting toward those who have most to lose if the station name is misleading - the train passengers. I vote for "Wynyard West" at Barangaroo.

And the station with the current name of "Pitt Street" should be called "Park Street" - much more focussed.

Re: New bus stop shelters for Sydney?

It's important that the new shelters be functional. The Decaux shelters are not. If you sit on the seat you cant see the bus coming because of the advertising.
