Intro[edit | edit source]

This is a stub page - to assist with guidance, and knowledge-sharing, towards those wishing to make a critical submission as part of the Melbourne East-West tunnel ("East-West link" proposed in inner-Northern Melbourne, Australia.

We envisage the page will have:-

  • A short summary of the CIS proposal;
  • An outline of the key sections, and critical commentary on the major issues raised;
  • Links and advice for where to go for further references.
