THE completion of the Pacific Highway will be a national priority under a future coalition government said The Nationals’ candidate for Lyne, Dr David Gillespie.
“I am pleased to welcome today that a future coalition government will provide $5.6 billion to complete the duplication of the Pacific Highway and will restore the 80:20 funding partnership with the NSW government,” Dr Gillespie said.
“This announcement provides an extra $2.08 billion in new funding for the Pacific Highway – and it means an end of the ‘blame game’ when it comes to the Highway. This funding commitment of $2.08 billion is on top of the $3.56 billion already on the table.
“The Pacific Highway has been voted the worst road in NSW by NRMA members for the past two years. Too many people have died and too many families have paid a terrible price on the Pacific Highway.
“As a doctor, I know that our hospitals, medical staff and our emergency services are at the front line of a terrible situation that we must fix. Delays in construction simply mean more deaths and injuries.
“This road kills and injures people, harms our local economy and is a terrible trauma for medical staff and emergency services personnel.
“Local communities rightly expect federal and state governments to work together and build this significant national infrastructure.
“A federal coalition government will work with the NSW government to make this project a reality. We are going to get the job done. Like any resident, I wish Rob Oakeshott had delivered on this and made our community safer, but he didn’t and he won’t. He promised a 2016 completion and we know it’s not going to happen … he had an opportunity to stand up to the federal government and he didn’t take it.”
Let’s make the Pacific Highway safer, says the Nationals’ candidate for Lyne, Dr David Gillespie.
