Re: Not everyone wants Trams to Burleigh. Gold Coast Bulletin 4 July.

With this Gold Coast line, one fairly important reason why people don’t want the trams in their area is the anticipated high-rise development for 800 m on either side of the line. Up to a point, I can commiserate with that.

As for M1 highway noise (the road between Brisbane and Sydney), although my house is nearly a kilometre from it and over a hill I can still hear it start to roar about 4 AM each weekday as the morning peak starts to get flowing. I’m not certain I have ever heard the adjacent rail line noise.

How many more times can they widen that road which already 4 lanes Helensvale to Beenleigh?

I think this new anti-tram stuff is simply a result of the huge popularity of Q-Link and they are scared that the unwashed masses will come to their neck of the woods in their droves at the weekend. They totally forget the convenience of leaving their cars at home many times and catching the tram to where ever. I note someone said "no tram, just fix the M1" what on earth are they on about. Squealing trams verse a solid noisy major road, trust me you people at Burleigh Heads or where ever, the noise of a major road NEVER lets up . Its just noise noise noise; give me the occasional squealing tram any day.
