Daniel Andrews has released the blueprint for Labor's Alternative transport plan for Victoria.
- $300 million to begin Melbourne Metro
- Removal of 50 level crossings
- Construction of the 'Westgate Distributor' - upgrade of truck route from Westgate to Ports area via off ramps at Hyde St.
- Upgrade of Tullamarine Fwy and Hoddle St
Not a lot of detail yet, but great to see common sense has prevailed with the Westgate Distributor option over Westlink. The Melb Metro will finally get underway, though still wont turn soil till near the end of the decade and still relies on federal funding. Level crossing removal will finally get serious, increasing from the mere trickle we see now.
Thoughts? Does it go far enough?
