Victorian Voters, Political Parties Face Generational Choice on Transport, says PTUA

November’s Victorian election is shaping up to be a defining moment in the State’s history when it comes to transport policy, the Public Transport Users Association said today.

“With every week the stakes become clearer for the future of Melbourne,” said PTUA President Dr Tony Morton. “Do we embrace a Detroit future by going ahead with the $18 billion East West Link? Or do we follow the example of the world’s most liveable cities, like Vancouver when 40 years ago it said no to more motorways, and invest in world-beating public transport and an efficient arterial road network?” More in link.
