Premier Daniel Andrews’ decision not to proceed with the former Coalition Government’s visionary East West Link infrastructure project will see Victorians paying out over $800 million.
That money could have been used to pay for a new Royal Children’s Hospital, a new suburban railway line, 19 brand new trains, 25 brand new schools, a new police station even a new ambulance station.
This will cost local workers jobs, it will increase business and living costs, it will likely see taxes rise to pay for the compensation and it will do nothing to reduce environmental pollution caused by cars stuck on congested roads.
Premier Andrews – stop throwing Victorian taxpayers money down the drain!
