I have a beef with these state governments who get private companies to build there roads etc. then place huge tolls on them. These roads do cut travel time in quiet periods on weekends etc, but during peak periods these roads are an inadequate joke.

p.s. I wont expect any sympathy from those who don't use them ;)

Go a bit or earlier or later and you won't have to worry about the traffic

I agree with the sentiment expressed by Byso that the outsourcing of the building and then ultimate huge profits that go to the companies end up fleecing the tax payer for short term gain for governments.

Sadly we live in an age where economic rationalism rather than the public good are the main interests. Once upon a time responsible governments could take loans to provide public infrastructure but now it is whether there is a surplus that is the bottom line. Whenever there is a surplus it means that us PAYE taxpayers have been fleeced one way or the other.

its only an $11 billion surplus so not much to play with really.

Will go on tax breaks for those earning over 200K a year
