Peter Walsh MP:
Letter to the Editor

A letter to the Editor by Peter Walsh

Dear Editor,

Country Victorians don’t need a website to tell us regional and rural roads have been seriously neglected by the Andrews Government.

Labor recently announced a ‘bold plan’ for regional roads, but instead of spending money fixing country roads, Labor has spent money building a website and named it ‘country roads’.

The only ‘bold’ part of Labor’s plan is its absolute determination to ignore the needs of our country communities.

A website won’t fill a pothole.

And it doesn’t fix dangerous road edges.

Daniel Andrews is prepared to spend more than $1.3 billion not building a road in Melbourne, but he won’t invest in fixing our country roads.

Daniel Andrews is a Premier for Melbourne, not for all Victorians.

At the next election, country Victorians will have a choice. More of Labor’s neglect or a Liberal Nationals government that will bring spending back to country Victoria.



Peter Walsh
Leader of The Nationals
Shadow Minister for Regional Victoria and Decentralisaton
