Labor’s State Budget cuts infrastructure and surplus

Today’s State budget cuts infrastructure spending and reduces the State’s surplus in order to pay for a big increase in the public sector wages bill and other spending.

Many of the road and rail investments in the budget either repeat what the previous Coalition government announced or are years off and don’t have the funds to pay for them.

All this at a time when Victoria should have had projects like East-West Link starting now so congestion doesn’t continue to get worse and jobs can be created.
