Who do you believe? Infrastructure experts or Daniel Andrews?

Infrastructure Australia have found what almost every motorist knows – Melbourne needs the East West Link built.

About the only ones who don’t agree is Daniel Andrews and Labor who wasted $1.3 billion in taxpayers’ money to cancel the East West Link contract.

Daniel Andrews continues to argue that Melbourne does not need a link between CityLink and the Eastern Freeway.

The Infrastructure Australia report found the missing link between the Eastern Freeway and CityLink was one of Victoria’s three most critical infrastructure challenges.

Not only has Daniel Andrews wasted $1.3 billion cancelling the East West Link contract, Infrastructure Australia says delays in that corridor could cost $144 million by 2031.

Victorians will keep paying the price for Daniel Andrews reckless decision to pay $1.3 billion to not build a road.
