Country roads forgotten
I wish to express my disappointment that Daniel Andrews is wasting around $800 million to not build the East West Link in Melbourne, yet he can’t find the money to fund local projects and roads maintenance in our region.
Some of these key projects include $1.2 million to refurbish the Dimboola Secondary College, $8 million for a new education precinct in Warracknabeal, $2 million to refurbish and rebuild parts of Baimbridge College in Hamilton and $15 million to redevelopment the Hamilton Hospital Emergency Department.
I have been pushing for Daniel Andrews to reverse his decision to cut the $160 million Country Roads and Bridges Program, and to reinstate hundreds and millions of dollars the Labor Government have slashed from VicRoads repairs and maintenance budget for regional roads.
We all deserve quality services, whether we live in the city or the country, and it is important country communities are provided with first class facilities.
