City of Yarra Mayor Jackie Fristacky & Yarra Councillor Stephen Jolly were on 3AW to talk about their opposition to the East West Link toll road and tunnel project.
The East West Link is an incredibly expensive tunnel and toll road project that the State Government of Victoria is planning. The project is much maligned by infrastructure experts and public transport advocates who say that the project is poorly conceived, overpriced, and likely to worsen the very problems it is trying to fix.
On top of its cost, the toll road will also require the eviction of neighbourhoods in the way of construction, digging up Royal Park in Melbourne, and experts believe it will repeat the failures of similar tunnel projects in Sydney and Brisbane.
