Daniel Andrews’ plan for bigger Eastern Fwy traffic jam

Upgrading Chandler Highway is a sensible move, but it should have been part of a full upgrade to the Eastern Freeway.

The Eastern Freeway is a congestion calamity; funnelling more cars on to it without building the East West Link will make this problem even bigger.

It beggars belief that Daniel Andrews spent $1.2 billion to scrap the biggest road project in the fastest growing city in Australia. It’s no wonder Melbourne is approaching a congestion crisis.
