ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja and ACT Shadow Transport Services Minister Alistair Coe announced today that if elected, a Canberra Liberals Government will duplicate William Slim Drive. Mr Seselja said William Slim is an important connection between Belconnen and Gungahlin.
“A Canberra Liberals Government will duplicate William Slim Drive if elected, as part of our $700 million commitment for Canberra’s roads,” Mr Seselja said.
“This is an important road for Belconnen and Gungahlin residents and has been neglected for too long for ACT Labor.
“Duplicating William Slim Drive will save Canberrans travel time and relieve congestion, and it’s an important part of our plan to give Canberrans better local services with lower rates and charges,” Mr Seselja concluded.
Mr Coe said the Canberra Liberals have a long-term plan for Canberra’s roads.
“ACT Labor’s iconic failure, the Gungahlin Drive Extension, shows the government’s inability to manage roads infrastructure,” Mr Coe said.
“The Canberra Liberals understand the importance of proper roads planning, and would ensure it’s done properly from the start, by engaging independentInfrastructure Canberra Commissioner, backed by an industry board, to develop a roads blueprint for Canberra.”
