PAY ATTENTION ALL. This is an email I sent to the office of Geoff Craig, Victorian Minister for Road & Civil Planning. Many may not be aware that the Liberal Government has allocated funding for the Eastern Freeway Extension before evaluating the "Long Tunnel" proposal. This proposal has been put forward by the residents of the Whitehorse & Manningham Municipalities together with the Australian Conservation Foundation so as to preserve native bushland and fauna of national significance. To give people in other states an idea, it would be like running a freeway through the Blue Mountains or the Adelaide Hills and we propose putting the freeway mainly underground.
I think this issue is very important as we can't continue wholesale clearance of native vegetation and bushland.
I'll keep you posted

To whom it may concern,
I am writing in regards to the imminent extension to the freeway and its funding. I have been informed that the Government has ruled out having the excess cost (ie: over and above the $255million allocated) of the 'long tunnel proposal' funded by private contractors who would be repaid through tolling the extension. I would like to know why it has been ruled out, which effectively eliminates the long tunnel proposal. That being the case, the long tunnel costing study, which is currently being prepared, must have been organised for PR reasons, because the answer is already decided by default.
I would appreciate an answer to these points
Thankyou, Nigel Sterpin
