COMING SHORTLY - CAST Statement on the 3 Billion Tunnel

We have opposed the concept and construction of the 3B
Tunnel from the time it was first proposed by Jim Soorley.

We're preparing a detailed statement to explain why we
continue to vigorously oppose the Tunnel, and why we urge
all motorists to boycott the Tunnel.

Keep checking this site for our full statement.

Public transport users

Are you a public transport user?

We are trying to form public transport users groups that would operate in different areas around southeast Queensland

For example, Ipswich, South Brisbane or the Gold Coast.

Write us an email at castptug@yahoo.com.au if you would like to be a part of a public transport users group in your area.

These small groups would work on making improvements to their local transport systems, by lobbying local politicians etc.

Good luck with finding the group. I would, but I live in Melbourne.

Today I had to carry a heavy box of things and a big bag to the train station nearest to my house. I live about halfway between stations, so a 10 minute walk is unavoidable.

This would only be reduced by putting in another station between the two nearest to me - and to cater for everyone else, one halfway between every other pair of existing stations, which would slow the whole trip down even more.

It takes me an hour to get to work by train - almost half of which is walking. My workplace is 15 minutes walk from the nearest station. So increasing frequency of trains would still not greatly reduce the total time or save me the hardest part - walking.

(Note - I have long legs, so these walk times would be a great deal longer for many other people.)

No improvement will make my trips much shorter or easier - especially if I have bulky/heavy/numerous items to carry.

Without cars, we will be in the third world. That's at least as bad as 'the possibility' of climate change and 'the possibility' that the peak oil theory is right.
