The Greens’ Meredith Hunter is taking a swing at the residents of Queanbeyan and their filthy motorised personal transit into our fair city every day:
- The ACT Greens have called for the Chief Minister and Queanbeyan Mayor to agree on the need for bus/taxi priority signals along Canberra Avenue.
“Over 60 percent of Queanbeyan City workers commute to the ACT, and the fact that the vast majority use a private motor vehicle has real impact on parking, congestion and emissions.” ACT Greens Parliamentary Convenor, Meredith Hunter MLA said today.
“There’s an opportunity for a fresh start with a new Mayor over the border and the Chief Minister taking back the Transport portfolio.”
“We’re hoping for some concrete results to come out of this meeting and the Greens would look to support investment in sustainable transit between the two cities.” Ms Hunter said.
Greens Transport Spokesperson, Amanda Bresnan MLA has identified priority signals as the logical first step to improving transit between the two cities.
Well, it’s not as if they vote here.
