There's a lot of criticism of Campbell Newman in this article. While I'm not saying it's not accurate, it does tend to read like he's a liar. "despite Newman promising that he would in April 2006." "ten years more than promised by Newman in the 2004 election." "This is more than twice the $2 tolls promised by Newman." "more than triple Newman's election estimates." "Newman has been criticised", etc. I don't think he's building it himself. I've removed one of the most POV claims, and fact tagged the 'has been criticised', since there's no mention of by whom.

Fair use rationale for Image:NS-Tunnel-SEntry.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:NS-Tunnel-SEntry.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. BetacommandBot 03:50, 1 October 2007 (UTC)


I've cleaned up most of this article today, with the exception of the Public offering section, something I know little about. I left the clean-up template because of that and have assessed the article as C class as it is now coming along quite well. - Shiftchange (talk) 08:57, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Tunnel entrance photos[edit]

It would be good if someone could take some photos of the tunnel entrances showing the sculptures and how they filter the light. - Shiftchange (talk) 03:26, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Clem Jones Tunnel assessment rating[edit]

I have copied the following from my talk page, for any editors who whish to improve this article - Evad37 (talk) 15:43, 8 April 2013 (UTC)

Could you explain what you think needs to be done to make Clem Jones Tunnel meet B:class criteria? - Shiftchange (talk) 22:43, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

Hi Shiftchange. I was assessing according to The B-class criteria for WikiProject Highways. My main concern is that that it is missing a route description section and an intersection list.
The route description could be integrated into the "Design" section, and would basically describe where it starts, the route it follows, and where it finished, including distances to features, eg from start to the river, from the river to Shafston Avenue, and then to the Pacific Motorway. The distances can be taken from Google maps if there is no better source available, and cited using the {{Google maps}} template.
An intersection/exit list is usually more than just a list, and should contain, for each entry, the location (ie suburb), the (wikilinked) name of road, and route designation if applicable, and destinations (such as what appears on the green background advance guide signs). Again it can be sourced to Google maps, although a published street map can also be used.
The Causeway is an article I recently got to GA, and while it is a bridge, it has the same sections I describe above.
I also have some suggestions if you want to take the article to WP:GAN:
  • There are a couple of section 2 headings with only two sentences in them - they should be either be expanded or integrated into other sections.
  • The lead should summarise the article, and its content should be reflected and expanded on in the body of the text. Half of the refs in the lead don't appear elsewhere in the article, and outside of the lead, the history starts off with the announcement of the successful tenderer.
  • Every paragraph should end with a reference - most do, but there are a couple that don't.
  • Refs 8, 9, 38, 39, 44 only have a linked title. They should at least have the publisher, and preferably also date and access date.
Though not required for GA, a map would be nice. This can be done as an image uploaded to Commons and/or as an {{attached KML}} file. - Evad37 (talk) 03:45, 27 March 2013 (UTC)

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page[edit]

Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessarily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request its removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

Below is a list of links that were found on the main page:

From your friendly hard working bot.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 10:41, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

 Resolved This issue has been resolved, and I have therefore removed the tag, if not already done. No further action is necessary.—cyberbot II NotifyOnline 20:48, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

This article appears to sound like political propaganda against the Newman adminstration. I severely doubt the neutrality of this wiki. 04:43, 12 March 2007 (UTC)
