Smith: Victorian Infrastructure

Wednesday 20 May 2015


Victorian Infrastructure

Daniel Andrews needs to put Victoria first and not Transurban first.

Daniel Andrews is always quick to play the blame game with the Abbott Government but is yet to provide them with any significant detail on the proposed Western Distributor.

The Abbott Government and State Coalition are committed to better infrastructure in Victoria that lessens congestion and creates jobs but it can’t be at the sole expense of motorists in the eastern and southern suburbs.

The proposal being discussed between the State Coalition and the Abbott Government is a good plan because it provides a way to develop major new infrastructure but with less tolls for Victorian motorists.

It’s time Daniel Andrews stopped being a handbrake on a better deal for Victorians.
