TransitWay

The transitway has been designed for the future and can be converted into a lightrail system that will be introduced in the future, so why not develop the transitway now with light rail, surely at todays cost it would be far cheaper to implement rather than tomorrows dollar equivalent.

The proposed buses powered by natural gas could be used through-out the rest of Western Sydney where no service now exists.

This project basically started without an environmental impact statement while construction of the transitway road started at the Bonnyrigg end, near an existing bus depot.

The public called for an E.I.S. from the N.S.W. transport minister and an E.I.S. was called, but no alternatives to the bus only transitway were given for this E.I.S.

It is to be a bus only transitway.

The public want, non - polluting light rail.

The Government wants bus only, one must look at who in the industry is to benefit from bus only and whether the contracts are fairly given in the tendering process as a greater public interest.

There are new technologies in light rail, not even considered, yet are begging for a start, to prove they are a viable and flexible alternative to the polluting public bus transport we have to endure, because of political back slapping.

One of these technologies is the Austrans mass transit system, they have their first test track at Chullora in Sydney's West in conjunction with Rail Services Australia and are building a second test track in Canberra ACT soon.

(Reported in Sydney Business Review 15 th December 1999 page 7)

This technology is based on mini shuttle cars travelling on the same track in the same direction and individual cars can be switched to branch lines and loops automatically.

Light rail must be pursued as its the only clean environmentally responsible alternative for the 21st century which can be powered by the sun, wind and bio-generators in the event of fossil fuel depletion.

Tell the decision makers that you only want light rail transport as busses are doomed with the rising petroleum prices and don't forget tyres are made with oil as well.

Light Rail is the only affordable transport system for the future both for the environments sake and also your transport cost of getting to work in the future.


Light Rail would not need all these huge ugly bus stations in your residential areas as proposed which would be a magnet for hoodlums after dark and would require more security adding cost to the travelling fare that you would have to pay.
