Message from Gerry McLoughlin at IMPA: Following from the very successful forum on the Western Distributor unsolicited bid proposal by TransUrban held at RMIT Centre for Design on 22 March 2017 BETTER WEST Community Group (member group of IMPA inc) with support from IMPA inc, PTUA, TT4e, NMWM and others have organised a Community Forum following the announcement on Sunday 2nd April 2017 of the TransUrban unsolicited bid West Gate Tunnel Project
We would like to invite you to attend this important event to hear from experts on Transport, Air Particulates and from Politicians how this project is a city changer for the worse and will not solve our very real freight on road conflicts to the entire inner Melbourne area.
The community is concerned with various aspects of this project not least the undemocratic nature of the insidious take over strategy of a privately owned transnational company of major public infrastructure. Other crucial issues include
Where is the strategic plan that supports this project? – there isn’t one. The Victorian Transport Integration Act 2010 all but ignored as is the Victoria Truck Action Plan and the projects that fell out of these policies of the previous ALP government
Our response is to support the local Western community groups to achieve a credible response and alternatives
BETTER WEST, FORUM
Date: 27th April 2017
Venue: at the RSL at 16 Mary St SPOTSWOOD at 6.00pm
Freight on road through inner Melbourne is not the future we want / a TransUrban road monopoly is not a future we will permit to happen (TransUrban owns13 of 15 tolls roads on the eastern corridor) Melbourne is the next significant link in their business strategy to take control of Australia’s eastern corridor roads
