VAGO lifts lid on level crossing lies

Opposition Press Releases

Today, the Victorian Auditor General’s Office (VAGO) report has blown the whistle on Daniel Andrews and his level removal crossing program.

VAGO highlighted massive cost blow-outs in this project totalling up to $3.3 billion or 38%.

The report also criticises Daniel Andrews for not undertaking a proper business case assessment of the project before proceeding.

On top of this, VAGO has said the level crossings Daniel Andrews selected for removal were not the “most dangerous and congested” as he claimed they were.

It would seem Daniel Andrews has been selecting his level crossings based on politics, not what will improve traffic flows in Victoria.

Despite promising to take the politics out of infrastructure, Daniel Andrews has spent millions of taxpayer dollars on misleading advertising about removing the 50 most dangerous and congested level crossings. Daniel Andrews needs to cease wasting public funds on his propaganda, which VAGO has clearly shown to be false.

This shows once again that Daniel Andrews is more about spin than substance.

Only a Liberal Nationals government led by Matthew Guy has a plan to get Victoria moving.
