Andrews Government refuses to reveal cost blowouts before election

On Jon Faine’s program this morning when discussing the level crossing removals project, Jacinta Allen refused to reveal how much over budget the project is and confirmed the government would not reveal the cost of those blowouts before the election.

Victorian taxpayers have a right to know how much these blowouts will cost them.

The Andrews Labor Government claimed they had to build the Sky Rail option because they couldn’t afford to build rail under road like they promised before the election. Now we learn that the cost blowout for Sky Rail is so large that Daniel Andrews is keeping it secret from Victorians.

Victorians are doing it tough with cost of living pressures and are frustrated by this government’s reckless economic management and the damage it’s doing to the economy.

Before the last election, Daniel Andrews liked to wax lyrical about transparency and accountability, but now he is engaging in a game of cover-ups and secrecy.
