Brisbane:  BCC Mass Transit Forum .. Smart State or Late State?

RAIL ? Back On Track (http://backontrack.org) a web based community organisation for the promotion of rail throughout Australia has congratulated the Brisbane City Council (BCC) for actively seeking opinion and comments on mass transit options for Brisbane.  Citizens have responded with many constructive suggestions and comments.  The forum is located at http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/BCC:STANDARD::pc=PC_2698

Robert Dow said:

 ?The Mass transit consultation on the Brisbane City Council?s web site has brought forward much constructive opinion and comment.  RAIL Back On Track believes now is a critical moment in the future planning of an integrated public transport solution for not only Brisbane, but the wider SEQ urban area.?

?It is worth noting that the rail, bus and river transport systems are generally doing a great job within the constraints of the limited resources available today.  There is room for immediate improvement with timetable adjustments, and many such suggestions are being made on the forum.  We earnestly hope that the suggestions will be taken on board by Translink, BCC, and Citytrain (QR).?

?In the longer term, maximising the potential of heavy rail including underground extensions, with light rail options for inner city high density areas, with a coordinated fleet of environmentally friendly local buses feeding key transport hubs ? railway, bus and river transport stations, and articulated buses running long haul routes where rail not available is the way to go. River transport can also be expanded.?

?It is not too late to really make Brisbane the Smart State Capital.  Well done Brisbane!?
