Queensland Government promises to build yet another (probably tolled) fucking car tunnel. @brisbane

Fuck this makes me **so** angry. We KNOW this doesn’t work. You want to solve congestion, road diet the existing roads. Build good bike infrastructure. Build good public transport. How does this happen with a single off-the-cuff announcement when *months* of back-and-forth debate over public transport network with the NWTC went *nowhere*.

    Haha, cheers on the cake day, i’d forgotten!

    Thanks for the description of some of the terms. Stroad, that i’ve heard before, is good to read a little reminder on. I reckon parts of Orrong, and Canning roads in WA would be good candidates ecamples of Stroads.

      I’ve never been to WA, but I wouldn’t be surprised. Most of the roads we design in Australia, apart from motorways and inter-city highways, are stroads.
