RAIL Back On Track
Media Release 20 August 2006
Petrie to Kippa-Ring Railway
RAIL - Back On Track ( http://backontrack.org
) a web based community organisation for the promotion of rail throughout Australia has called for the commencement of construction for the long awaited railway to the Redcliffe peninsular.
On behalf of RAIL Back On Track, Robert Dow said: "There is a need to provide sustainable solutions to public transport from Petrie to Kippa-Ring. Despite initial reports by Queensland Transport strongly endorsing an extension of the suburban rail network from Petrie to Kippa-Ring, no progress has been made with the railway. Bus solutions will not provide for the projected growth along the transport corridor, and will only add to the general traffic congestion in the area.
Looming energy crises will force future rapid and excessively expensive development of rail solutions. A 'smart state' moves forwards today!
We call on the Government to make a commitment to stop the nonsense, and follow the initial advice of Queensland Transport and commence construction of the railway immediately."
