The National Trust also presented yesterday – their report is attached.
My main take aways from that session were
- They feel very strongly that the new tunnel must go under the Citylink road tunnel (that crosses under St Kilda Rd near the Melbournian).
- They feel very strongly about the trees and made several very well reasoned arguments. But they accept some will/should go and work must go into replacements. They even said that the value of the trees is much higher than replacement trees and that Metro Rail should provide funding for extra amenities to compensate.
