Hodgett: South Yarra interchange business case

Thursday 18 May 2017

South Yarra interchange business case

South Yarra residents will welcome today’s news that Daniel Andrews and Jacinta Allan no longer believe business cases are relevant in building important infrastructure like the South Yarra interchange.

Until today, Daniel Andrews and Jacinta Allan have argued that the business case for a South Yarra interchange doesn’t stack up.

But with today’s perceptive and insightful admission from Jacinta Allan that when it comes to business cases you can’t put a dollar figure on improving the public transport services as well as the safety aspects, South Yarra residents can look forward to a welcome backflip from the Andrews Government on building the interchange.

Unlike Daniel Andrews’ behaviour before the election, the Liberal Nationals will offer bipartisan support to build the South Yarra interchange and not cyclically use the business case to politicise infrastructure.
