Media release 25 Jan

Airport Link - traffic and pollution disaster on Stafford Road

There will be huge increases in traffic on Stafford Road as a result of the Airport Link tunnel.

Council’s own impact statement for the project shows that without Airport Link there will be an average of only 26700 cars per day on Stafford Road in 2012, while with Airport Link there will be 40300.

By 2026 it will be 29100 without Airport Link compared with 45500 with Airport Link.

“We are being told by government that Airport Link will reduce congestion, but the fact is that it will do the exact opposite,” said Tristan Peach, CAST spokesperson.

CAST are advising the public that Airport Link will lead to the following impacts on Stafford Road:

* On- and off-street parking for business and residents will become more dangerous and traffic accidents will increase

* Travel times for public transport users will blow out as they get stuck in congestion

* Residents, business and schools will suffer from more toxic fumes and noise pollution

* Safety and amenity for pedestrians and cyclists will be greatly reduced

Local, State and Federal Politicians for this area are failing their constituents if they support Airport Link.

Mr Peach stated, “We have a simple and effective solution to this problem - the money from Airport Link should be spent on additional public transport so that we can reduce traffic on Stafford Road, reduce accidents and reduce poisonous fumes in the air”.
