Tony Moore, in the Brisbane Times (17.1.16) reports that the Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk has dismissed Rod Harding’s plan for a new light rail system in Brisbane:
‘Cr Quirk said the ideas suggested for investigation by Mr Harding would not improve the traffic capacity problem in the city because it would travel where the blue City Glider now ran. He said the blue City Glider service between New Farm and West End, which connects to the University of Queensland ferry, carried over two million passenger a year. “So what we are seeing is a very expensive solution to something that is not a problem,” Cr Quirk said. “The blue City Glider works perfectly well,” he said.
