It just gets worse: The Brisbane Tunnel saga
The latest from Queensland’s exercise in Motordom excess:
The latest figures show the toll tunnel was hit by another drop in traffic last month, with data revealing an average of 6211 fewer motorists per day used the facility compared to November.
Since opening in late July, the tunnels have not reached ambitious traffic forecasts which predicted it would be used by 136,000 vehicles per day at the end of the initial three-month toll-free period.
Airportlink is still in a discount toll period until the next scheduled increase in fees to use the tunnel to hit motorists in April.
But BrisConnections may not last that long. The troubled company is in talks with lenders to avoid receivership, with a decision on its future due by the end of March.
