Example of passions running high over the issue. Putting myself in their shoes it would be hard to watch your property price being impacted and your way of life to boot because a consultant to a government already now under pressure says the cheaper option is the better one. The changes in level crossing removal will procide long lasting benefits to motorists so why do it in the cheap and not do a proper full job.

This woman has created more than one altercation mind you.

Proper is actually subjective, not just spending more money makes it better.  It is well known that in the shoe industry that buying over a certain price point you are just spending money because you want a certain brand but there is no discernible benefit. It's not like the "Skyrail" or in normal terms Viaduct is wildly cheaper than a trench, its realistically more 10-15% savings. If you run this over several projects you start to see savings, considering how our economy is tracking that's not a bad idea.

Also decent public transport and less road congestion helps property prices too. Prices are impacted by the rail line being there anyway but apparently only a few people knew until recently and everybody else lost their minds.

Trenching isn't a 'proper full job'. A proper full job would be quadruplication and that is method-agnostic when it comes to grade separation. Skyrail is the best way to remove those level crossings - it's cheaper and far less disruptive than trenching.

As for the protestor: I daresay if she was a CFMEU shop steward the Herald Sun would call her a 'jackbooted unionist thug' and demand that she be locked up.
