Community Forum: West Gate Tunnel Tollway Will It Slow You Down?

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

Western Region Environment Centre presents West Gate Tunnel Tollway Will It Slow You Down?

Hear about the impact of West Gate Project on the outer west from speakers with interests in social justice and expertise in public transport planning. Does this project solve congestion on our roads? Will it cut commute times to Melbourne? What will it cost in tolls and who pays the most? What are the costs along the corridor?

Are their benefits and do they outweigh the costs? Are roads the only solution to moving people and freight cost effectively and quickly? Now that the Environmental Effect Statement with 17 technical studies has been released the claims made by the proponents of this project Transurban and the Victorian Government can be publicly tested. Hear how you can have your say.
