With that kind of history – is it any surprise this sale has been rushed through on the day submissions closed for the NSW Legislative Inquiry into the impact of the project?,The National Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit and Infrastructure Australia have criticised the project and both the State and Federal Auditor General have raised serious concerns.,It’s been independently verified that WestConnex has been marred by a shocking lack of governance and proper process.

So what has the Government promised – was it preferential bidding for future toll roads? Was it the right to collect tolls beyond the expected life of toll roads? Was it agreeing not to build or improve public transport in areas that would impact on WestConnex?

So what has the Government promised – was it preferential bidding for future toll roads? Was it the right to collect tolls beyond the expected life of toll roads? Was it agreeing not to build or improve public transport in areas that would impact on WestConnex?,And because the terms are secret we don’t know what this Government has promised Transurban as part of the sale. There are many examples of contracts that favour the operator’s commercial returns over outcomes for the broader community.
