Say NO to West Gate Tunnel – rally for a sustainable Melbourne
Please share to your profile, page or group – Say NO to West Gate Tunnel – rally for a sustainable Melbourne – come along and show solidary for Melbourne’s west residents, as with Transurbans plans, the rest of us are under renewed threats from inappropriate road projects right across Melbourne!
This Sunday 17th December – 11am -1pm, Brooklyn Reserve, 26 Nolan Ave, Brooklyn
People are gathering to send a signal to the government that this type of infrastructure and the way they have planned it with Transurban is not the way to plan for a sustainable Melbourne. The same government has plans for more mega roads. Its time to stop and think before it is too late.
Community Forum: West Gate Tunnel Tollway Will It Slow You Down?
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.
