An election-defining promise: The opposition’s $30 billion roads plan explained

The Coalition will spend $30 billion on massive road projects for Melbourne if elected to government in November.

Opposition leader Matthew Guy today announced he will start building the East-West Link and a North-East Link by 2021.

Plans released today (video below) show a revamped East-West Link with two new options.

Mr Guy has also committed to completing Labor’s West Gate Tunnel project – a project the Coalition had opposed, but which is included in the $30b bill.

Mr Guy told Ross and John his plan, which promises to become a major point of difference in November’s state election, was a “generational” project.
