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.

Bus stops 56 and 57 on Queen Street near Post Office
Square will be temporarily closed from Monday 8

CAST Statement on Airport Link - coming next week

The State Government issued several statements on Monday
19 May stating that it had approved a tender by BrisConnect to
construct the Airport Link tunnel, the Windsor to Kedron busway,
and a flyover at the Airport roundabout.
The announcements gave very limited details of the financial, design
and environmental components of the proposed contract.
The Courier Mail has not provided full and accurate details of the
contract or the approved design.
Local residents whose homes or properties are or may be affected
in any number of ways, have not yet been provided with the information
that they are seeking, and to which they are entitled.
Likewise, CAST has not been given any reliable information.
We understand that an "information centre" will be established by
BrisConnect either today [Thursday] or tomorrow. As soon as
we know when and where this will be happening, we will report to you.
When CAST has been given access to all of the financial, design,
environmental and construction information, and the impacts on
both the local and general community, we will issue a formal
statement on the benefits [or otherwise], impacts and effects of the
proposed works.
We expect to issue this statement next week.

For the CAST committee
David and Tristan
