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.

Ever realised how much of our traffic congestion is attributable
to parents delivering and collecting children by car from home
to school and back again every schoolday?
How much would the community save in health costs and wasted
time if most children walked or rode to school?

A new British study of 6000 children between 10 and 16 has revealed 
that boys who rode their bikes to school were 20 per cent fitter than 
those who travelled to school by bus or car, and the girls were 30 per 
cent fitter.
"Children need to be active and stay fit in order to be healthy," said 
the author of the report. 
"Encouraging them to walk or cycle to school is one great opportunity 
to help achieve this."
