I noticed from Glenferrie Road that preparatory work is happening at the foot of the Monash Freeway. I understand it is to be widened. It seems such a short time ago that it was last widened. It has to be less than ten years.
The widening is necessary to free up traffic flow on the freeway. That was what was said last time it was widened. Call me a bit thick if you like, but this strategy just does not seem to work. The stationary traffic surely proves the point.
Perhaps if they widened it and put a train line there instead of extra road space, a longer term benefit may be gained.
I wonder if I will see the Monash Freeway widened again in another ten years. The Hobart option is looking more and more attractive.
