LOL. 20% funded by the McGowan government. They were elected in March, the extension was well and truly paid for before then....

Australian government press releases about road infrastructure are often loaded with political propaganda, sometimes even going as far as to detract former governments for not delivering or breaking promises. I don't see that as much in other countries.

Just a few minutes watching pariiamentary debates in Canberra and you'd see how ridiculous it gets sometimes...

I live in Perth, and know all about it.

Not just road infrastructure. Governments do it with everything....

Was truly entertaining to watch Mark McGowan open the Aubin Grove Station just weeks after becoming premier and trying to claim it.

North East Link: Which of the four options is best?
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-08-0...mpared/8782898

Quote:
After years of talk and millions of dollars spent on planning, the Victorian Government has released four route options for the proposed long awaited North East Link.

The favoured option of both the Government and the Opposition is Corridor A, which is the cheapest and shortest, but we've looked at how each would impact road users and the surrounding environments.

With many of the options running through sensitive Victorian electorates, we've also analysed the potential political ramifications of each proposal.


Option A


Option B


Option C


Option D
