Infrastructure Australia is talking, is Andrews listening?

Infrastructure Australia has today, again, nominated the East West Link as a ‘high priority’ project for Victoria.

Infrastructure Australia’s Current Infrastructure Priority List has said what every motorist stuck in traffic each and every day knows; Daniel Andrews must “SAY YES to East West”.

Not only does Infrastructure Australia list the East West Link as a ‘high priority’, it also says the East West Link should be completed in the next 5 years, in comparison to the North East Link which is listed as a priority to be delivered in the next 10 years.

Victorians deserve to spend less time stuck in traffic and more time with family and friends, but congestion is bad and getting worse.

In 2019, the Andrews Labor Government refused $4 billion from the Federal Government to build the East West Link.

Who says no to a free road?

Sadly the Premier, in a political decision, keeps saying no.

The independent experts say we need it. Commuters and small businesses know we need it.

Five years ago the Andrews tore up the contract to build the East West Link costing Victorian taxpayers $1.3 billion.

Had that contract not been torn up, the East West Link would now be open.

Premier Andrews – commuters have had enough spending hours each week stuck in their cars.

It’s time to SAY YES to East West.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Transport Infrastructure, David Davis:

“Melbourne’s traffic congestion is bad and getting worse because our major freeways aren’t connected. The East West Link will ease congestion across the road network.

“Infrastructure Australia and Infrastructure Victoria say it needs to be built. Victorians who are stuck in traffic know that it needs to be built and the Federal Government is willing to pay for it.

“All Daniel Andrews has to do is stop blocking it and SAY YES to East West.”
