An economic study has found that investing in rail is the most cost effective transport solution to reduce road congestion in
Australia’s two fastest growing cities – Brisbane and Perth.
Commissioned by the Australasian Railway Association (ARA), the ‘Value of Action versus the Cost of Inaction’ study found that
investing in rail instead of roads would cost 57 per cent less in Brisbane and 38 per cent less in Perth and would achieve the
same reduction in traffic congestion.
ARA Chief Executive, Bryan Nye said the study confirms that investment in rail provides greater value for money than roads and
is a more cost effective option to reducing congestion in our cities.

Nice to see the ARA reporting on the benefits of rail, but I wonder if the media will pick up this story.
