South Road Link
As many of you are aware the government has planned to divert all large trucks for Portrush Road to Cross Rd at some point in the future. The government is also investigating Globelink; that is diversion of freight (and maybe trucks) from the train corridor. This would then allow a passenger train to again service Mt Barker. The suggestion in today's paper from the Freight Council is to link the freeway to South Rd via a new tunnel and road connection at Springbank Road. For those who use Cross Rd frequently or live near there this would enable the existing amenity to remain.
