Comments from the Shadow Minister for Roads and Infrastructure Ryan Smith

Daniel Andrews has used the slow train to deliver the Coalition’s level crossing at Blackburn.

The only level crossings that were fully funded in this year’s Budget were those planned and funded for by the former Coalition Government.

Unfortunately Daniel Andrews has failed to fund the East West Link, a congestion busting project for the east.
