Labor kills Doncaster rail: Bandt

Australian Greens Deputy Leader and Federal Member for Melbourne has slammed Victorian Labor’s transport plan, released today, saying it confirms that Labor will kill off Doncaster rail and back the East West tollroad.

Mr Bandt said the recycling of Labor’s promise on Metro Rail, a project all sides support, could not cover up what is essentially a plan for more roads. 

“Labor has sold out inner-city Melbourne,” Mr Bandt said.

“The communities of inner Melbourne who were hoping for a solid commitment to stop the East-West Toll road will be bitterly disappointed by this. Labor has confirmed it will build the tollroad if the Liberals sign the contracts and as a result Doncaster rail won’t ever be built. ”
