Stop the waste and secrecy

In 2012 Westconnex was a $10 billion road project to connect Western Sydney to Sydney Airport and Port Botany, but six years on the cost has blown out to at least $17 billion and it doesn’t go to the port or the airport as promised.

Frontline health, education, and public transport services are missing out because billions of dollars are being squandered in blowouts and delays to the Sydney Light Rail and WestConnex projects.

Enough is enough. We need your help to stop the waste and secrecy on major infrastructure projects.

A NSW Labor Government will end the mismanagement, incompetence and waste that have been the hallmarks of the Berejiklian-Barilaro Government's major infrastructure projects. 

In his budget reply speech, the Opposition Leader announced a four-point plan to end the blowout and secrecy that have underscored projects like the WestConnex toll road and the Sydney light rail:

1. We will hold a judicial inquiry into both these projects to establish exactly how they have gone so wrong.

2. We will never use secretive vehicles, established specifically to dodge freedom of information laws.

3. We will not sign construction contracts before planning approvals have been received.

4. We will legislate to require infrastructure NSW to provide annual 'health checks' on the progress of major projects and publish their findings.

If you want to stop the waste and secrecy on major infrastructure projects, sign our petition now.
