Light Rail

People have asked why bother to include a page on Light Rail in this website, when the Government has ignored all criticism about light rail right from the outset, and will continue to do so, given little risk of ever losing office.  With some 63 per cent of Canberrans voting Greens or Labor, the Greens/Labor coalition cannot lose an election under the Hare-Clark system, no matter how badly it performs or might abuse taxpayers.

The simple answer is to keep the travesty that is light rail in Canberra before the public eye.  This website complements the complete history of opposition to light rail, as documented from July 2014 through to the 2020 ACT election, by CanTheTram Inc and Smart Canberra Transport (SCT), and which has been lodged partly with the ACT Heritage Library and in the National Library electronic depository (Neds). 

Acquisition and Logistics Study Centre (ALSC) continues the earlier work of SCT and CanTheTram Inc.

Such analysis should be the accepted basis of valid decisions, taken by individuals, business and governments.   It exists to provide for wise investment and to obtain value for money. 

Sadly, the process and even the underlying science is often manipulated by decision-makers for political or ideological reasons.
