THE Transport Infrastructure Minister’s troubled management of the West Gate Tunnel continues to plague the Andrews Labor Government as workers are laid off.
The workers are to be laid off due to issues with contaminated soil on the site.
Shadow Minister for Transport Infrastructure David Davis said it is time that Daniel Andrews and Jacinta Allan came clean on a number of questions facing many Victorians.
Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Transport Infrastructure, David Davis:
“Jacinta Allan and Daniel Andrews have botched this project. They should have known that there were issues with soil contamination given the construction is occurring in and around former industrial sites.
“There were warnings as the Environmental Effects Statement proceeded.
“The Government needs to face up to the workers who have been laid off and tell them the truth.
“There’s one thing Victorians do know and it’s that Daniel Andrews can’t manage money and can’t manage projects.
“This Labor Government cannot be allowed to cut a special deal with its Transurban mates to dilute or weaken safety standards around contaminated soil.”
