NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell spoke at a Liverpool Chamber of Commerce dinner last Wednesday for the fourth consecutive year, his third visit since coming to government.
He told the gathering of more than 180 local business people at the Roma Function Centre that he was happy to be visiting his close friend, chamber president Harry Hunt.
When asked about his stance on the proposed container terminal at Moorebank Mr O'Farrell said Menai MP Melanie Gibbons had done an excellent job of presenting her constituents' opposition to the project to both the federal and state governments.
"She's taken the matter up on a number of occasions and relayed the problem to me and I have relayed it to the federal government," Mr O'Farrell said.
He said while there would be traffic congestion with an estimated extra 20,000 daily truck movements across Sydney, it was a federal government project and whether it was built or not would be Canberra's decision.
