YB Tony

I've been following your efforts on the review of toll concessions and I am glad to see that you are doing what you need to do - examine government projects and decision-making in the interests of the public.

This is why we elect parliamentarians, whichever party they come from - to preserve and protect the interests of the public.

I'm looking forward to your posting on the forum - very sad that I could not attend.

TRANSIT believes that one solution to our traffic congestion problem is to expand the movement of people, not cars.

One quick, cheap and comfortable solution would be to build busways in the centre of our expressways, especially the toll expressways (NKVE, NPE, DUKE) that have lower traffic volume.
