http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/premier-embraces-light-rail-network-20120109-1prvs.html So it seems that the light rail network is expanding dramatically in Sydney. I'm not against this, I think the more public transport the better. However I've read many comments on here made by Melbournites about how bad tram tracks are. Currently the light rail network is small and mainly off the road. I haven't experienced crossing tram tracks in the wet before. Is it that bad? How many people have crashed because of it? Is the risk bad enough that we should jump up and down saying "not in my back yard"? Should we insist on being consulted in the process of laying the tracks? For those who experience the perils of tram tracks every day, if you had a chance would you go back and protest the introduction of trams?
