Come to the 'Save Rymill Park Picnic Rally'
The Adelaide Park Lands Preservation Association shares the Government's desire to encourage usage of public transport and welcomes the success, over recent years, of the O-Bahn system. However, APPA objects to the Government's:
- very short, misleading, and essentially sham consultation process which has fostered a mistaken public belief that its proposed project involves a tunnel underneath Rymill Park; exclusively for O-Bahn buses; and
- efforts to link return of 3,000m2 of Park Lands to new alienation of Park Lands. The land proposed for return could be returned to Park Lands regardless of whether the O-Bahn City Access Project goes ahead or not.
APPA believes the Government's proposal is over-reaching, in that instead of just prioritising O-Bahn buses, the Government wants to prioritise all vehicular traffic with a ground-level highway that would cut a broad swathe through one of the most popular parts of Adelaide's National Heritage-listed Park Lands.
That's why APPA is co-sponsoring a 'Save Rymill Park Picnic Rally' on Sunday 31 May.
