Melbourne Greens candidate Ellen Sandell is calling for the Labor Opposition to use their newfound power to ensure the Government does not sign the East West toll road contracts..

“Daniel Andrews has said that he will support the Government’s budget next week, which means he is supporting funding for the East West toll road. Andrews has called on the Premier to delay signing the contract many times[1], now is his chance to make it happen” said Ms Sandell.

“If Daniel Andrews really wants to meet with the Premier to discuss governing for the good of all Victorians, then he should demand that the destructive and expensive East West toll road doesn’t go ahead, and that we invest that money instead in public transport” said Ms Sandell.
