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.
