Yesterday the Campaign for Better Transport presented to the ARC our alternative options for the current “holiday highway” motorway proposal:
- Based on current trends, up to 50 more people could die on this dangerous stretch of road by the time the $1.5+bn motorway is completed
- The current motorway proposal will run parallel to the SH1, as a tolled route. SH1 will remain as is, without any modifications to it.
- For a fraction of the cost we can implement significant safety and traffic improvements. The current proposal does not stack up economically.
