Its a tough decision between busway and heavy rail for me.

Ultimately I chose heavy rail because it will cater for increased service levels to the North Coast and along CAMCOS well in to the future. I think there is a lot of mixed-use TOD potential along the Trouts Rd corridor. around Flockton St at Everton Park is one; The old woolies warehouse on Stafford Rd is another. There is also heaps of land in Carseldine and Bridgeman Downs which could support a residential TOD.

Light rail and keep it going.  It is time that Brisbane looked towards modern light rail for the capacity, sustainability and cost.

Id go heavy rail for the extra capacity it would give the caboolture/kippering/nambour and camcos lines

I would say heavy rail, but on the condition that the 2nd cross river rail tunnel has been built to ICRCS specifications. I would not run Caboolture/Petrie/Kippa-Ring services along the Trout Line for reasons mentioned in another thread.

I voted for light rail - Just. I see it as being adaptible for transport toward Enoggera, however, i see potential for Heavy Rail, depending on what locations it will serve to its South and far North. Id say a transport plan for the Brisbane area would solve that question. (N.B. With Campbell Newman NOT on the panel ! )

Once trans-apex is finished we will see a strong shift from Campbell towards public transport. there are only so many roads you can build

I think that is a very naive comment!

I agree totally.  If the Lord Mayor gets to complete his TransApex plan this City will be so broke, so congested, so susceptable to oil price hikes, so polluted that it will have become an economic, social and environmental wasteland.

I went out to the corridor today to have a look.  Wide corridor, double track would fit comfortably ..

I don't know how to say this, but I've been looking at The RACQ website and looking at their lobbying submissions and proposals to government (yes they have a suite of proposals ready whenever the opportunity presents).

Have a look at the trouts line. http://www.racq.com.au/motoring/advocacy_for_motorists/traffic_and_roads/?a=24093

Awesome sauce. RACQ has been showing a broader view towards transport issues lately. I think they too have come to the realisation that no matter how much you try you can't build roads for everyone and other transport (trains/buses/ferrys) has to be encouraged, even if it's just commuting to work. But from the looks of it, they have in connecting to the 2016 tunnel. Don't know how well that will go with current plans, but plans can and do change. Plus, the inclusion of a line following roughly that route on a document (forget which board it was in, its on the forum somewhere) which was referencing the 2031 document which should come out soon, makes me think that this may be more of a reality than we think. Of course then theres the big question of WHEN this will actually be built.
There is no silver bullet… but there is silver buckshot.

It does have merit. With Kippa-Ring now a probability and eventually CAMCOS/More Nambour services, it would make sense to expand track capacity to the North.
