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.

Ipswich public transport users group

Essential improvements to public transport in Ipswich

Please send us your ideas for specific improvements that need to be made to public transport in and around Ipswich.


We will make a submission to the government on your behalf and also email the submission to our list of contacts so that more people can write in support.

Make sure you include your name, email address, contact number (optional) and postcode so your identity can be verified by the government.

Try to describe your concern and possible solution(s) as simply as possible to minimise our need for editing, and to maximise the chance of government responding to your concern.

For example:

Location: 'Stafford Heights' bus stop on 345 Buz route, inbound, 100m south of Rode / Appleby Road intersection. Stafford Heights, Brisbane.

Concern: People sitting at the first bus shelter (shelter closest to where the bus stops) have their views of approaching buses blocked by the advertising panel on the side wall of the second shelter.

This means people only see the bus when it is 20-30m away. If the bus is moving at 40-60km/per hour this does not leave people enough time to get up, identify whether it is the right bus and then hail it, particularly if they are physically impaired.

Solution: Remove the advertising panel from the second bus shelter and replace with a transparent panel.

Noteafter making your submission we will put you on our mailing list for the Ipswich group unless you advise us not to. If at any stage after joining the mailing list you want to be removed simply send an email with UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line.
