After Labor's Pike, a failed half-backflip on road tunnel: Bandt

Victorian Labor still has plans to build a road tunnel stretching from Kensington to Clifton Hill, Greens MP for Melbourne, Adam Bandt, said today.

Responding to reports that Victorian ALP leader, Daniel Andrews, was now ‘anti-tunnel', Mr Bandt said that the Labor Party still appeared to support the plan it developed while in government for a bigger road tunnel than the one proposed by Premier Ted Baillieu.

"With Labor leaning back towards their original road tunnel plan, Melbourne's parks and liveability are once more under threat" Mr Bandt said.

"After the Pike comes a failed half-backflip, but it won't impress the Melbourne judges."

 "Labor must think people in Melbourne have amnesia. Labor spent over a decade in government and prepared the original tunnel plan."

 "Labor's weasel words show they still support their original proposal that threatened J J Holland Park and would turn Kensington, Docklands, Collingwood and Clifton Hill into traffic magnets."
