The YCAT rally on Sunday 27 July 2008 at Smith’s Reserve in Fitzroy was well attended, with about 200 people hearing a variety of speakers provide coherent opinions about what a waste of money building the east-west tunnel would be and how unnecessary it is.

The participants agreed they wanted the state government to invest in public transport as a priority. Public transport has been neglected for decades and this needs to change. More cars on more roads is not the answer.
