East West Link Compensation

Deputy Leader

The decision by Daniel Andrews to scrap the East West Link contract and waste around $800 million will cost Victorians new schools, ambulance and police stations, trains and hospitals.

Every time the Australian Education Union complains about a lack of funding in schools, remember that Daniel Andrews' waste on the East West Link is the equivalent of building up to 47 brand new schools.

If the ambulance union makes a claim for additional resources, don't forget that Daniel Andrews' waste on the East West Link is the equivalent of building up to 400 brand new ambulance stations.

When public transport advocates lobby for new and additional trains, think about how Daniel Andrews' waste on the East West Link is the equivalent of buying at least 36 brand new trains.

When there is a demand for more hospitals to keep up with population growth, remember that Daniel Andrews' waste on the East West Link is the equivalent of building three new Monash Children's Hospitals.

When there are community concerns about crime rates, never let it be forgotten that Daniel Andrews' waste on the East West Link is the equivalent of building up to 55 brand new 24-hour police stations.

And whenever motorists are stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic, they should never forget that it was Daniel Andrews' decision to scrap the East West Link when he did not have a single shovel ready road project to relieve congestion.
