Victorian Labor promises biggest transport building program in Australia

Victoria will undergo “the biggest public transport building program in Australian history” if the state Labor government is re-elected, Premier Daniel Andrews will promise in a speech marking 100 days until the November state poll.

In notes seen by The Age, the Premier will also take aim at the privatisation of Victoria’s energy market and the companies reaping massive profits.

“We were promised that a privatised electricity market would lower prices,” he will say in his address to the Committee for Economic Development. “Wrong. Privatisation has not worked.”
