When Citizens Live spoke to the protesters, a range of opinions emerged. Some were clear that the project should be scrapped, while some others said that due process including public consultations should be followed first.

However, the general consensus was that public transport should be prioritised over mega projects like the elevated corridor that only encourage car ownership further.
