Smith: Transurban’s T-intersection money spinner

Transurban’s T-intersection money spinner
Yesterday it was revealed in Federal Parliament’s Senate Estimates Hearings that the Andrews Labor Government is keeping secret all independent analysis of the Western Distributor project.
After wasting $1.2 billion of taxpayers’ money tearing up the East West Link, Daniel Andrews is now putting billions more at stake for Transurban’s T-intersection money spinner.
The only analysis on Transurban’s T-intersection Daniel Andrews will let anybody know about is his own and Transurban’s.
If this T-intersection stacked up, why is Daniel Andrews so determined to bury all independent analysis of it?
Roads Minister Luke Donnellan clearly doesn’t know a thing about Victoria’s infrastructure needs living 40km away from his Narre Warren constituents in the inner-city Fitzroy. So if nothing else, Daniel Andrews should release this independent analysis so his Roads Minister Luke Donnellan can read it.
Only Daniel Andrews could manage to sell-out both the western and south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne simultaneously.
