Comment on LETTER: Time for a third sealed national route by Ian Sharp.

Well said Bob and Russell. Sorry Rex, but opportunity cost is at the heart of this (they don’t call economics the “dismal science” for nothing). Scarcity of resources is real even for governments. You are “sure” a cost-benefit analysis has been done, I would like to see it, just as a starting point for further discussion.

LETTER: Time for a third sealed national route
Hi all, Bob has emailed me a copy of the CBA, which was done by Cummings Economics in Cairns. i think you can access it via their website: http://www.cummings.net.au/
Let’s all give a read?


LETTER: Time for a third sealed national route
Hi Rex, had a look at this website, some interesting stuff, am hoping to do this route in the next couple of years. But couldn’t find any mention of CB analysis?

LETTER: Time for a third sealed national route
Has there ever been a proper cost-benefit analysis on this? Without some sound economic reason for endorsing this claim on scarce resources, I’m with Russell

Nothing like a good bog event to test and build character … and to make drivers more wary in future. Well done the coppers.
