Cross City Tunnel saga continues

The toll-free period has ended. About a week ago. And the Cross City Tunnel is back on the news, with a vengence.

In the five toll-free weeks, the number of cars passing through it had steadily increased. The company running the tunnel had made a further concession of extending the the toll-free period to five weeks (was initially three).

Once the tolls applied again, the volume of traffic passing through it of course plummeted. In the meantime, the debates in the State parliament, counter-proposals, defences, etc. has been ongoing.

For me, I'm just glad I don't drive here.

112 days to go.
