Turnbull must now fix Abbott’s toll road woes
The report handed down by the federal Auditor-General examining federal funding decisions for East West Link confirms that the Abbott Government’s toll road agenda was purely political, say the Greens.
“We now know Tony Abbott made a 'captain's pick' by giving billions of taxpayers’ dollars to his Liberal mates in Victoria without a business case and against the advice of public servants,” said Greens member for Melbourne, Adam Bandt MP.
"In any fair world, Tony Abbott and Denis Napthine would be hauled before a tribunal for intentionally wasting billions of dollars in public funds for nakedly political purposes."
"Prime Minister Turnbull must immediately recant his support for the East-West tollway and return the money to the Melbourne Metro Rail project."
"Melbourne doesn't need more tram selfies, we just need Malcolm Turnbull to give back to Melbourne Metro Rail the billions Tony Abbott ripped from it."
