Bridge Upgrade to Improve Safety

A re-elected Turnbull Government will improve safety by investing in the upgrade of the
Carlton River Bridge.

A re-elected Turnbull Government will undertake a significant corridor study to improve
safety and traffic capacity on the Bass Highway between Cooee and Wynyard.

Labor's so-called 'Metronet' funding commitment today is really an announcement that it will refuse to back the vitally needed Perth Freight Link project.  The Turnbull Government has already announced a plan to deliver $490 million to Forrestfield Airport Link – existing planned work Labor has simply rebranded as 'MetroNet'.

PAUL FLETCHER: Well I just wanted to make some comments about a number of infrastructure issues.
