North-east Link - Members Statements

Thursday, 16 November 2017 Assembly 1

Mr T. SMITH — It pleases me that the Minister for Roads and Road Safety is in the chamber to hear this statement, because my residents are extremely concerned about the lack of consultation that is going on about the proposed north‑east link, the number of options and indeed the route alignment of the link. They are constantly asking questions of his office and of this obscure authority that is simply incapable of answering the reasonable questions that my constituents have. I note the member for Box Hill is nodding as well that his constituents have similar issues. When will we know the answer to these important questions? Why will the minister continue to hide his preferred route alignment? It is unacceptable that my residents are still in the dark about this proposed project.
