The Turnbull-Joyce Government is delivering a $20 billion investment in rail that will cut congestion in cities, grow the regions and create thousands of new jobs.
How Rossco, how is the E-W link going to help with traffic on Hoddle Street which is a N-S road?. Traffic will still exit at Hoddle Street with all the ensuing congestion.The EWL as proposed by the previous Government would not have solved congestion problems on Hoddle Street as traffic headed for the City from the Eastern would still need to use Hoddle Street to access the CBD as there were no intermediate interchanges proposed between Hoddle Street and Flemington Road.
And Rossco, remember the last Government diverted some $350 Million from a major rail project to find a country road by-pass. That should not bee acceptable.
