Jacinta Allan has admitted that the numbers in the Parliamentary Budget Office report into Daniel Andrews’ dodgy deal with Transurban are correct.
In a doorstop this afternoon, Jacinta Allan claimed there was “nothing new in the report” and did not contest any of the numbers.
This is the report that found that the deal struck by the Andrews Labor Government with Transurban will cost motorists an extra $37.3 billion in tolls. The Parliamentary Budget Office also calculates that daily CityLink commuters will be charged $87,060 extra in nominal terms over the life of the agreement.
It is a sign of breathtaking arrogance from this Labor Government that it has no sense of shame about the dodgy deal they have signed which will cost daily CityLink commuters an extra $87,060 in tolls.
By saying there is “nothing new in the report”, Jacinta Allan is telling Victorians that she stands by the decision to slug CityLink motorists with an extra $37.3 billion in tolls.
