Toll Free? No Way!
The last two days have been a disaster on Melbourne’s roads as the works begin to add an extra lane on the Bolte Bride and the West Gate Freeway.
Road users have called for road tolls to be made free as their journeys begin to take double the amount of time in the morning and afternoon peaks.
This morning the Road Minister has said that while he ‘’understands the frustrations’’ for motorists who are stuck on the road but he has ruled out waving the tolls because it will lead to greater congestion.
To add to the traffic woes caused by the widening, the last two days have seen crashes cause further chaos with a massive 70 minute travel time happening inbound from the Western Ring Road through to Montague Street.
