ABS shows more users of our roads

Monday, 23 October 2017

More Victorians are using roads to get to work yet they keep getting relegated to the slow lane by Daniel Andrews.

The simple fact is Daniel Andrews hates motorists.

Australian Bureau of Statistics Census data released today shows that 137,005 more driver use our roads to get to work than in 2011.

With Victoria’s population growing at over 100,000 every year we need a plan to build roads, but all Daniel Andrews does is scrap them.

We need the East West Link. The RACV thinks so, Daniel Andrews’ handpicked infrastructure advisers think so, Victorian commuters know so.

Daniel Andrews spent $1.25 billion scrapping the largest road project in Victoria and has left commuters with more and more gridlock.

Under Daniel Andrews our roads are carparks because he has no plan to fix the congestion clogging them.

Only Matthew Guy and a Liberal Nationals Government would have a plan to ease the squeeze on Victoria’s population.
