In the 2019 Federal election, both Labor and the LNP committed to fund a duplication of the Linkfield Rd overpass. The Labor federal commitment would have delivered $100 million in the first term of a Labor government, the LNP commitment would deliver $100 million at some point in the future. The assumption from the Federal government budget papers was that this funding would come through some time after 2022. What we now know is that the Federal LNP government had zero dollars for Linkfield Rd until 2026!
