Peter Dutton: Out of touch on Infrastructure

October 19, 2018

The Member for Pine Rivers, Nikki Boyd, has today written to Federal Member for Dickson, Peter Dutton, asking him to please explain his recent social media commentary on local and state transport projects.

“Peter Dutton has had 17 years to fix Youngs Crossing Road, to duplicate Linkfield Road, to create more parking at Ferny Grove Rail Station and to contribute to vital transport infrastructure projects in our community.”

“Peter Dutton has failed Dickson – in two decades he has brought no significant federally funded projects to Dickson.”

“Now, six months before an election he is likely to lose, he is making a lot of noise – but still we see no Federal projects.”

Peter Dutton has committed at the last two elections to federally fund an on-ramp at Dohles Rocks Road, however, he has no plans as to how this on-ramp will be built, no costings and no timeframes.

“Peter Dutton talks a big game and tries to be a contender in Canberra, but he has left the people of Dickson behind.”

“We deserve better.”
