Electricity is clean power and an electrified rail corridor would most likely not have any more overhead wires than some of our streets with streetcars and poles. Regarding cancer and electricity, in today’s modern world you would basically have to live next door to a generating plant or a transformer station to be a statistic, even then you would have a better chance of getting hit by lighting.
Think of all this bitching and complaining as a good thing and maybe the government will finally realize that people want the best for their neighbourhoods, cities and country, and maybe instead of them putting off the electrification of our rail system for another 20-30 years. They just might do something about our antique infrastructure sooner than later.
Hey i am all for a direct link to the airport, but lets do it right, and not just ram something mediocre down peoples hoods, Just For The Sake Of It.
