Victorians are being short-changed by the Commonwealth. While our economy and population are growing fast, the Commonwealth Government keeps overlooking our needs.
Victoria is expected to receive only 9 per cent of Commonwealth infrastructure grants on average over five years. This is simply not good enough, given Victoria is home to 25 per cent of the Australian population.
Major projects such as Melbourne's new Metro Tunnel and the Western Distributor are fully funded and ready to proceed with or without co-investment from the Commonwealth.
The Andrews Labor Government will continue attempts to partner with the Commonwealth to get Victorians their fair share.
- Investing in major projects
- Up to $12.4 billion new capital investment
