Brad BATTIN (Berwick) (14:37): (34) My question is for the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure. Residents of Casey are stuck in traffic with the false promises of both the federal and state Labor governments. The member for Narre Warren South was all smiles on Facebook on 4 November, showing residents pretty graphics of major roads for a Clyde Road upgrade. The member boasted about the extra lanes and the intersections but failed to confirm the state’s financial contribution if the federal government was still contributing the promised amount committed to by the previous Morrison Liberal government of $50 million for the works. It seems on the government’s major roads projects website that all the information shown is just an orange line, with no information, no time line, no funding declaration – just a lonely orange line. Minister, can you please provide information, including time lines, of the promised Clyde Road upgrade, which includes the Kangan Drive intersection and upgrades to the extra lanes of Clyde Road over the Monash overpass. Also please provide the federal funding and say what is happening with that federal funding – or is it another Albanese cut to my electorate?
