Slater and Gordon are considering launching action against the controversial east-west link tunnel including breaches of the Transport Integration Act.
On the face of it, there is a good case.
The Transport Integration Act provides a framework with six transport system objectives (what we are aiming for) and eight decision-making principles (how we deliver this aim).
Decision makers must have regard to all these objectives and principles.
By taking a triple bottom line approach to decision-making, the transport portfolio will be able to advise the government about the implications of proposed actions on the full range of its policy goals.
