The Public Transport Users' Association (PTUA) says the Victorian Government should be making the most of existing public transport infrastructure, before investing in a new rail tunnel.
Sir Rod Eddington's report on an east-west transport solution proposed a $7-billion rail tunnel from Footscray to Caulfield.
The Government is considering a public-private partnership as one of the funding options, if the tunnel is approved.
Daniel Bowen, from the PTUA says a new, privatised tunnel would drive up public transport fares.
"We would like to see better use of existing rail infrastructure we have at first before we go and spend [up to] $9-billion on a new rail tunnel," he said.
"So it is a very expensive project and I think the government needs to be very wary before they go ahead and approve it."
