VICTORIAN AUSLINK ROAD FUNDING

Once the Victorian Government signs the AusLink Bilateral agreement, Australian Government money will flow to roads projects in that state. However if the State Government does not remove the proposed toll on Scoresby, Federal funding will not be made available for that project.

I look forward to the Victorian Government signing this bilateral agreement as soon as possible.

I am pleased that the Victorian Government has agreed to apply the National Construction Code to AusLink projects in Victoria.

The Code is about raising efficiency levels in the transport construction industry by addressing overmanning, stoppages and demarcation issues.
