Transforming our public transport system and reducing congestion

Our state is growing faster than any other.

Overlooking Ringwood Station

The Victorian Budget 2016-17 will transform our public transport system, reduce congestion on our roads and improve safety for everyone.

This Budget invests over $10.4 billion in public transport and road projects across Victoria.

We have already started removing 50 of our most dangerous level crossings, and will fully fund Melbourne's new Metro Tunnel to get this major transport project done.

We'll partner with any Commonwealth Government willing to support Australia's most important infrastructure project, and will keep advocating for Victorians to get their fair share.
