|My Northbourne Avenue Proposal|
The ACT Liberal party have proposed a Bus Rapid Transit System
for Canberra, as an alternative to the Light Rail system already under construction by the ACT Government. While lower cost than the Light Rail option, the opposition's bus alternative would still be more expensive than the option I proposed
and would result in higher carbon emissions.
The opposition plan adds an extra lane for busses to Northbourne Avenue. Adding a lane would require extensive and expensive work, but not as much as laying tram tracks and adding overhead power. Because the number of lanes for cars would not be reduced, there would not be a reduction in carbon emmissions from cars.
