The ALP’s Transport spokesman Martin Ferguson, has promised $30 million to upgrade the road network if Labor wins the election, on top of the $13 million already promised by the ACT Government and the airport.
Mr Ferguson says the Federal Government has been neglecting ACT roads.
“This piece of transport corridor requires Commonwealth assistance, with the private sector Canberra International Airport and also the ACT Government,” he said.
