Westconnex and Light Rail Problems: Solved!

Apparently the cost of Westconnex in Sydney will be something like $45 Billion which will encourage thousands more cars onto our congested roads, increase traffic congestion and kill Sydney trees and green spaces. For $45 Billion we could buy 90,000 buses, which would take 9 million cars off the road, and save our green spaces. Problem: Solved. Apparently the cost of the Sydney Light Rail will be $3 Billion to install and operate 30 trams, which will cut public transport capacity, increase traffic congestion and kill Sydney trees and green space. For $3 Billion, we can buy 6,000 buses to take 600,000 cars off the road and save our green space. Problem: Solved. Please, cancel the contracts, save our city from economic, environmental and social degradation, and lets make Sydney Beautiful again! With hope and thanks, J.
