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.

INFORMATION ALERT CIty Bus Stops relocated from Monday 8 March

Bus stops 56 and 57 on Queen Street near Post Office
Square will be temporarily closed from Monday 8
March to Wednesday 30 June due to streetscape
construction works.
Stop 58 will be moved by up to 20m in the direction
of travel and services from this stop will also be affected.

We are continuing to make submissions on behalf of public transport users, cyclists and pedestrians to Translink, service providers and Government.

These are shown on the page below described as 'Submissions to Translink' together with current status and replies if any.

If you are aware of a transport service or systemic fault that needs to be rectified or improved, contact us and we'll follow up the issue with the relevant authority on your behalf.

New electronic petitions calling for Government to change policy on fares and services - now open

The totally unjustified and appalling action by the State
Transport Minister and Translink to increase fares for
public transport users on January 4 by between 20% -
for plastic card holders - and 40% for paper ticket holders,
has resulted in a storm of protest from public transport
commuters. For more details and outcomes about this
outrageous decision, see other posts on this site.

Two electronic petitions have now been created to give
all public transport users an opportunity to lodge their protest
with the State Minister and the Parliament.
While the text of each petition does not include all of the issues
involved in the fares and ticketing debacle created by Translink,
and could have been much better drafted, CAST urges all public
transport users to consider signing the petitions before the
deadlines next month. We have not initiated these petitions. 

To access and sign either petition, they can be read by going
here and also to here. There is no cost involved.
