Shadow
Minister for Roads and Infrastructure, David O’Byrne, said the Hodgman Liberal
Government has no plan and no vision to improve infrastructure in this state.

“At
the last election, the Liberal Party announced with great fanfare and glossy
images a commitment to build an underground bus mall in Hobart,” Mr O’Byrne
said.

“Now
after five years of inaction, they announce a feasibility study for a dedicated
bus transit centre to see whether it should be above or below ground.

“This
is incompetence. After five long years and growing traffic congestion, it is
clear that this Government has no plan, no vision and no idea.

“The
Hodgman Liberal Government’s track record on infrastructure in Tasmania is
woeful. In 2014, they announced an upgrade to the airport roundabout but here
it is in May 2019 and they are yet to start it.

“Tasmanians are fed up with traffic congestion and deserve better.”
