    Yay, more infrastructure for the last efficient road users

    Wouldn’t the money and work be better spent on mass transit links saving people from having to make those trips by car?

      Ugh, yeah. We live close to and commute along Gympie Rd.

      The construction along the Kedron section has traffic slowed at all hours of the day and night, exacerbating an already obvious issue with those living in the Northern Suburbs being forced to commute along a road that has houses and schools on it.

      A North/South highway is needed - not another toll road.

      Especially since these toll roads are sold on the promise of “It’s only a toll for x years, then it will be free!” only they have all made back what they cost to build and more, some many times over.

      Many have been sold to a private corporation with no plans to make good on the original promises.
