BET­TER OP­TIONS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

WHY would the Gov­ern­ment want to spend more than $2 bil­lion on 10,000 pas­sen­gers to the air­port when 100,000 would ben­e­fit from light rail?

I just vis­ited the Gold Coast and was blown away with their new light rail that I caught out­side my ho­tel in Broad­beach all the way to South­port and the Pan Pacs. Ser­vices run ev­ery 15 min­utes. In Mel­bourne, I caught the bus shut­tle to the city and then a train to Moorab­bin and I ar­rived one hour after get­ting off my plane.

A bus shut­tle to the air­port and an east-west light rail would be the best op­tion for Perth. COLIN HUGHES, Mid­land.
