      I passionately support public transport over roads. My brother's apartment is alongside the eastern freeway, just before Hoddle street. The EWL will decimate his standard of living.

      A fast, connected rail service distinguishes the best cities in the world. It is environmentally friendlier and benefits all citizens.

      Peak oil and pollution issues should be making alternatives to road travel a priority. It's a regressive project

      As far as I can tell, the East West Link is a massive overspend and completely unsustainable on every level. It'll destroy homes, parklands, undoubtedly create more congestion, pollution and expense, and will only be available to those who can afford the tolls. Why not create improved public transport systems, cycling roads and walking trails. I would definitely ride to work each day in the city if there was a decent and safe bike track. How far into the future are we thinking? 20 years, maybe? Let's think into the next century and create infrastructure that we can be proud of, that future generations will thank us for. Let's create a city that is green and sustainable. We owe it to ourselves, and the future generations.

      I vote 100% NO to the East West Link.
