Back Sturt St trans­port plan

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

I AGREE with com­muters the new CBD bus stops could have been bet­ter lo­cated.

The coun­cil’s pre­ferred lo­ca­tion was in Sturt St near the Cow­boys League Club and the op­po­site side of the street out­side the old court­house.

Both of these lo­ca­tions w e r e t u r n e d d o w n b y Queens­land Trans­port and Sun­bus be­cause of cost and traf­fic-re­lated is­sues. As a re­sult, Walker and Stan­ley St were ap­proved.

The coun­cil hasn’t given up on Sturt St, but we will need strong sup­port from com­muters.

I’d en­cour­age peo­ple to get be­hind the Sturt St plan and con­tact Sun­bus, Q T , t h e c o u n c i l a n d elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

DAVID CRISA­FULLI, Plan­ning and Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment Chair­man.
