We are seeing some positive signs from TMR such as "We can not solve congestion by building roads" but it is yet to translate into high PT/AT mode targets or plans to actually deliver this targets.   They also see little need to change the focus of freight tranport form road to rail either.  Still oin the 1960's for my likeing.

Long way to go.

The Draft Connecting SEQ 2031, although still heavily road centric is an opportunity for change in a positive way.  I am looking forward to the final version, I would expect the feedback has been considerable.

A year ago I'd have given them 2/10, but have upgraded to a 5/10 as a result of the swing toward more sensible planning that is embodied in both CRR and Connecting SEQ 2031.

Still too much road focus, but that setting is moving after having been stuck at the "ROAD" end of the scale for decades.

CRR and Connecting SEQ 2031 gives them a higher score.

Connecting SEQ 2031 says the right things but the road biases projects will only deliver the exact opposite.

... says the right things ...

And there is the root of the problem.  For years now the rhetoric has been "saying the right thing", but the follow through by actually doing something has been missing.  

Springfield, MBRL, CRR, and above all else, service frequency improvements, are an opportunity to start putting things right.  After years of empty promises it is going to take a lot for people to start believing anything that goes in a media release or a glossy brochure.

I'll believe it when my train comes more frequently than every 30 minutes, and the bus leaves the station 5 minutes after the train arrives, not 2 minutes before like it does now.
