Australia: Victoria election outcome confirms failure of Federal Government Infrastructure policy

RAIL Back On Track (http://backontrack.org) a web based community support group for rail and public transport and an advocate for public transport passengers has said the Abbott Government must now reverse its policy of not funding public transport.

Robert Dow, Spokesman for RAIL Back On Track said:

"The Prime Minister Tony Abbott called the Victoria Election a referendum on the East West Link road tunnel project (1). Well the people have spoken, they have rejected the road tunnel project."

"The Prime Minister should reflect on the election outcome and note that people want better public transport too.  We of course need roads, but not at the exclusion of public transport."

"The Andrews' Victorian Government must now get on with building better public transport for Victoria. The Abbott Government needs to respect the election outcome."
