The East-West toll road is projected to cost taxpayers up to $18 billion. It is very expensive, has little economic benefit for Victoria and won't reduce traffic or city congestion in Melbourne. Last year our volunteers joined with other community groups to stop this project.
Investing in world-class public transport infrastructure reduces traffic and pollution. It is cost-effective, sustainable and makes Melbourne a liveable city for all, including motorists. If we don't invest in mass transit now, congestion will destroy Victoria's ecology and economy.
