Unfortunately, in September 2019 the Andrews Government blocked the East West Link in State Parliament, rejecting the Federal Government’s funding for East West Link.
If you’re one of the tens of thousands of people who use the Eastern Freeway regularly and are sick of being stuck in traffic – you’re not alone, and we need your help!
People are saying they’ve had enough of the gridlock, enough of the additional financial cost, and enough of the wasted hours being stuck in traffic on the Eastern Freeway every week.
HERALD SUN, 12 MAY 2019
The East West Link is a cross-city road bypassing the CBD and connecting the Eastern Freeway with Citylink/Tullamarine Freeway. It provides a much-needed alternative to the Monash and West Gate freeways and connects Melbourne’s freeway networks, and most importantly will slash travel times.
At every turn, the Andrews Government is blocking the East West link. Whether it is ripping up contracts costing taxpayers $1.3 billion or trying to list the Eastern Freeway for heritage status, the Andrews Government is turning its back on what is important to communities in the eastern suburbs.
It’s time to SAY YES to East West. The East West Link is a vital project that needs to be built. With congestion only getting worse, we can’t wait any longer.
Together, we can get our message through, so I encourage you to join with me and SAY YES to East West!
