The public consultation period has now CLOSED for the Sunshine Coast’s Mass Transit project.
There are nine options under consideration in the Options Analysis to meet the transport needs of the coastal corridor. These include:
- business as usual
- road-wide network upgrades in the coastal corridor
- region-wide bus service enhancements
- region-wide bus network upgrades
- quality bus corridor
- Bus Rapid Transit
- Light Rail Transit
- Trackless tram
- Wireless Light Rail System (identical to the light rail option, minus the overhead wires, with on-board batteries and charging equipment at select stations)
The State Government and Council have funded this consultation project. Think about the extra traffic congestion there will be if you take lanes of traffic out of those corridors. The money needs to be put into the right planning and move on with building the right infrastructure, and that requires an integrated transport plan that also addresses road congestion and cars.
I will say again that we need an integrated transport plan with the RIGHT INFRASTRUCTURE, currently that is not the case.
