Mildura MP Peter Crisp slams Bill to block country roads funding

A MOVE by the Greens and Labor to block millions of dollars in extra funding for country roads has been condemned by Member for Mildura Peter Crisp.

In State Parliament last week, the Liberal Nationals proposed amendments during debate of the Transport Legislation Amendment Bill 2018 that would see more funding put into maintaining roads in country Victoria.

“Roads in country Victoria are getting worse and worse, but still the Andrews Labor Government chose to block our efforts to increase maintenance funding,” Mr Crisp said.
