Does Labor want to toll the Eastern Freeway?

Labor Members for Eastern Metropolitan Region voted against the Liberal amendment that would prevent tolling on the Eastern Freeway.

Motorists should not have to pay tolls for existing roads, including the Eastern Freeway. At a time when all Victorians are doing it tough, it’s appropriate to give assurances to families in Melbourne’s east that tolls on the Eastern will not be implemented at any point in the future.

The Animal Justice Party, Reason Party, and Independent Catherine Cumming joined the Government in voting against the amendment.

By voting against this protection, what plans does Labor have for tolling on the Eastern Freeway in the future?

Comment attributable to Member for Eastern Metropolitan region, Matt Bach:

“I wanted to give certainty to hard-working families in Melbourne’s east, who are doing it so tough right now, that the Labor government would not toll the Eastern Freeway.”
