A better transport solution

Cairns Action for Sustainable Transport (CAST) is a recently formed community group.

They are encouraging community discussion and participation in developing environmentally sustainable and socially just transport systems in Cairns and our region.

CAST will hold a public meeting

Tuesday March 11th, 7 pm
Serbian Hall
Greenslopes St, Edge Hill.

Discussions on transport issues in Cairns involving the attending public will be the meeting’s main emphasis.

You can print out copies of the flyer for the meeting to help spread the word.

Initial meetings of CAST have discussed the reasons why dramatic change in transport planning is needed and many possible steps to take along the way.

It is hoped this meeting will highlight:
• Fixed rail services along the Gordonvale-Cairns-Redlynch rail corridor
(also motorrail to Kuranda and Skyrail transit access);
• Bus services;
• Role of fares;
• Bicycle network and facilities;
• Pedestrian and mobility aid access;
• Sustainable Town planning.

Anyone interested please contact Jonathan on 0431 683 088 or via email.
