People Plan for Melbourne
Posted in Policies by Devin Maeztri on November 7th, 2008
The Australian Greens Victoria have just launched a new Melbourne transport website and discussion paper called The People Plan. Also watch the The Brumby Mole YouTube video to see more about this plan!
This would cost $4 billion less than the Eddington proposals and deliver a massive increase in public transport usage, right across Melbourne. The website contains a map showing the train, tram and bus lines/extensions/ services we propose. Rationales and costings are in the supporting document. A massive effort is needed from to help communicate this plan to the general public, and ensure it is seen as the positive alternative to driving-as-usual proposal.
Please talk to your workmates, family, friends, neighbours and others about it, and send the website address to everyone who might be interested i.e. everyone who lives in or visits Melbourne, or cares about people and the planet.
