After 15 months of stalling the Andrews Labor Government has finally approved our much-needed second bridge.
There has been $96 million in the bank for this project since November 2014 thanks to the former Liberal-Nationals Government.
It’s disappointing the city-centric Andrews Labor Government has stalled for this long but now they’ve given the green light we are a step closer to construction.
There must not be any more stalling by the Andrews Government as this process continues.
The bridge still needs Federal Government funding and I will continue discussions with my Nationals colleague and Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Darren Chester to work towards securing that.
