Seeing as the most cursory observation highlights the discrepancies between projected and actual figures of motorists using the Clem 7 tunnel, it begs the question ...
Why is it that people would rather waste their time stuck in traffic on an alternative bottle-necked route, rather than waste their money on paying the Clem 7 toll?
I know the shockjockery of Peter Dick on 4BC can make for scintillating post-work radio noise, but is it preferable to getting home earlier and spending quality time with those children we're supposed to be having ? Should not we be mindful of the fact that a person's time is a finite resource - the source of which cannot be mined for more minutes - whereas more money can always be earned in our booming economy.
I am no proponent of invasive, large-scale infrastructure for the sake of motorists, but seeing as the Clem 7 is now finished and floundering, let's do like a politician and throw on the positive spin. That way, BrizVegas won't become a city famous for the longest white elephant, taking no-one from one side of the city to the other.
