Shadow Minister for Public Transport David Hodgett
A leaked report about a secret deal between Daniel Andrews’ Government and Metro must be referred to the Auditor General for investigation.
Daniel Andrews is running a secret state, blocking FOIs and hiding reports like this from Victorians.
The Andrews Government has been engaged in deceit and secrecy about Sky Rail and without an open tender process taxpayers can’t be confident they are getting best value for money.
Once again, Daniel Andrews has shown he has no respect for taxpayers’ money, with this leaked report coming out on the one year anniversary of the government officially tearing up the East West Link costing taxpayers $1.1 billion.
Nowhere is Metro mentioned as a key partner in the proposed construction alliance, yet it has secretly been given the key levers of control.
The removal of competitive tendering processes unfairly takes potential work away from good value independent contractors.
We will be writing to the Auditor General to refer Daniel Andrews’ secret deal with Metro for investigation.
