Transport Spokesperson Sue Kedgley Re Gully Report
"The hearing subcommittee has come up with a plan for the wrong century. They obviously haven't caught up with peak oil and climate change.
"It's incomprehensible that they would support a plan which diverts more than 90 percent of funding to roads and only a pitiful six percent to public transport. The strategies they are proposing - to build Transmission Gully etc - will make us more, not less, dependent on fossil fuels - with more car traffic and urban sprawl - and are completely unbalanced and unsustainable.
"Our rail corridor is desperately in need of investment. It's a tragedy that the hearing subcommittee's proposals will see our rail system continue to deteriorate."
