Melbourne, VIC: Level crossings already a 2018 election issue

6 Aug

Victoria’s Labor administration is committed to eliminating 50 congestion prone and higher risk level crossings in the Greater Melbourne area predicated on them securing a second consecutive term in 2018 state elections. This in turn is predicated on them undertaking design and development within the first term for at least some of the 33 with elimination after the 2018 election.

Now, an opposition politician, speaking in favour of the timely elimination of the Buckley Street level crossing in Essendon has said that if the Labor administration has let contracts to grade-separate this crossing, then an incoming Liberal administration would follow through to complete the project. How many more such commitments will flow before the ballot in 2018?
