Shorten promises light rail without business case

Shorten: “This is the way public infrastructure should be built in Australia, moving in well-planned stages, keeping a pipeline of work for Australia’s construction workforce and subbies, the backbone of Australia”.


…without a business case?

Comment: Apart from the fact that Light rail runs on electricity & this genius is going to shut down half of the reliable power sources to achieve his “50% Renewables” goal, Canberra doesn’t need light rail.

Light rail was a good option 100 years ago. Nowadays, the same throughput and efficiency can be achieved with diesel-electric buses. In future flexible transport will be semi-automated hybrid minibuses chained together for efficiency. Shorten is just wasting money.
