from Barry J Rumpf

Following from his cancellation of the East/West Link project, Daniel Andrews had to come up with an alternative. His pig headedness comes to the fore with his determination to ensure that this project never succeeds.

Early in his role as PM, Scott Morrison recognised how vital this project was to the solution of Melbourne’s ever growing traffic problems and offered Andrews that the Commonwealth would pay for the tunnel construction if Andrews passed the necessary legislation to compulsorily acquire the properties that lay in its path. Most of these had already been acquired or were in the process of being acquired, by the Napthine Liberal government.

Andrews’ response was to reject Morrison’s offer and promptly set about selling off those properties that had previously been acquired.
