AWU pushes for east-west tunnel

Posted in Victorian Rail News on 2012-07-30 11:15:02

THE powerful Australian Workers Union has backed the controversial east-west road tunnel project and says it will push a future state Labor government to support it.

Cesar Melhem, the secretary of the AWU's Victorian branch, told The Age it would be crazy if the project did not go ahead and his view was simply that it had to be built.

Victorian Labor opposes the section of the proposed east-west tunnel stretching from the end of the Eastern Freeway to CityLink and running underneath Royal Park and surrounding inner-city suburbs.

But it supports construction of a road tunnel in Melbourne's west to create a second river crossing and connection to the port to alleviate traffic on the Westgate Freeway. It also backs works on Hoddle Street to ease traffic flows coming off the Eastern Freeway.
