Letters to the Editor - Dec 14 - Jan 15

02 Dec 2014

Vested interests?

Regarding ‘Community resigned to tram bridge fate’ - Issue 103.

I along with many other Yarra’s Edge residents have written to various stakeholders including Planning Minister Guy.

I understand that many have received his response to these concerns and wonder why it has received scant coverage in this paper and on various letters and articles I have seen.

One has to wonder if there are vested interests applying so close to an election.

Mr Guy reiterated that this is NOT a funded project or  priority of the government.

It will NOT be developed before 2040.

The Government is committed to high capacity rail links through Montague St. Local tram infrastructure is a priority through a spur line off route 109.
