Welcome back to NewsDay. We’re returning now to federal politics, and joining me live from Sydney is the Minister for Urban Infrastructure, Paul Fletcher. Mr Fletcher, good to speak with you, thank you for joining us. Firstly, I’m keen for your thoughts on your Coalition colleague George Christensen. He’s threatening again to leave the Government and go out on his own as an independent. A Nationals MP I spoke with earlier today described him as the boy who cries wolf – would you agree with that analysis, or could Mr Christensen be serious this time?


Paul Fletcher is the Federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure and joins us this morning. Paul Fletcher, good morning.

The Auditor General’s report about WestConnex, issued today, has nothing to say about the way this transformational motorway project in Sydney is being delivered.

The Western Australian election offers the latest evidence of a disturbing trend: Labor and the Greens do not seem to care much about the infrastructure needs of Australians who do not live in exclusive inner ring suburbs.

Infrastructure investment is vital to Australia's prosperity, and the Turnbull Government is investing in a wide range of projects all across Australia, so that people can move about our cities and regional areas more quickly and efficiently, freight can get to market, and our cities and urban areas remain among the most liveable in the world.

The nation’s independent infrastructure advisor Infrastructure Australia has today added three major projects to its Infrastructure Priority List.
