Rudd should hold firm on East West tollway: Bandt

Greens Deputy Leader and Federal Member for Melbourne has urged the Prime Minister to stick with prioritising Metro Rail and not cave into a Victorian Government push for funding for the East West tollway.

A Victorian Government submission to Infrastructure Australia has flagged two three lane tunnels under the inner city of Melbourne and an additional lane on the length of the Eastern Freeway.
“Kevin Rudd needs to stay the course on funding for the Metro tunnel and not follow Tony Abbott down the East West tollway,” Mr Bandt said today.
“Instead of extending the Eastern Freeway traffic jam we should be building a rail line down the middle of the freeway to Doncaster.”
