Melbourne sustainable transport reform

From Appropedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Melbourne's transport system, while including extensive tram (light rail), rail, and bus networks, is very dominated by use of the private car for most travel.

Several efforts to reform this are underway. Some significant resources and organisations involved in this effort are listed below.

As of 2013, a current major effort is to protest and prevent the Melbourne East-West tunnel in favour of greater public transport investment, such as improved signalling on the rail network, and an upgrade of the rail options in the Doncaster corridor.

Relevant Appropedia Project[edit]
