LABOR CLEANS UP THE LIBERALS’ EAST WEST MESS
Premier Daniel Andrews and myself today announced that the
Labor Government and the East West Link consortium have reached a good faith
agreement that puts the interests of Victorians first.
Before the 2014 State Election, Daniel Andrews promised that a Labor Government wouldn’t proceed with the Liberals’ East West Link and wouldn’t pay any compensation. These promises have been kept.
The East West Link contract signed in September 2014 has also been released, as promised.
The Labor Government has incurred costs of just one dollar. In contract, the Liberals racked up a $339 million bill in their final, desperate weeks in office.
It’s time to get on with the projects our state needs: building Melbourne Metro Rail and removing 50 of our most dangerous and congested level crossings.
