The Dem and St Mary’s info night. Video 3. Alternatives to building motorways.

‘Mathew Hounsell talks about the $41 billion cost of the current set of roads, and the induced demand effect – build more roads and more cars will come. He unraveled the lack of business case for the roads and highlighted their inefficiencies. The proposed train based solutions to the Northern Beaches would be cheaper, carry more people, and not congest the roads with more traffic.

Also touches on how the filtration issue is used to divide and conquer groups who object to motorways.’
