This is an e-mail that I wrote to Spencer Howson, the 612 ABC Brisbane breakfast announcer (5am-7:45am on 612 AM in Brisbane) when I discovered the Port of Brisbane Motorway had gained M4 signs.
Today the NSW Transport Minister announced that NSW would finally be transition to the Alpha-Numeric route number system across the state. There is some information in here that most people won’t know and that the Roads Minister and opposition hasn’t told anyone about. I appreciate that you and nearly everyone else in NSW probably doesn’t care about this, but I’m hoping that the rest of this message will at least justify why they are doing this and why it matters. I will admit now that I am very nerdy in this area, but everyone has their little area of nerdiness!
