"The project for example recently completed on the Gold Coast, in Queensland, really has not been successful on the information provided to me. So there's a bit of rethink about light rail."

 :fp:

Where's he getting his "information" from?  Scott Emerson?

Close to 6 million journeys in a year, and Gold Coast wide 20%+ public transport increase is not success?

Alas there is no feedback permitted on that article to challenge this.
