Liberals cruel infrastructure failure exposed

  • Dynnyrne residents receive letter of acquisition
  • Liberals don’t care about resident’s concerns
  • Quick, cruel fix another bungled infrastructure project

The Liberal’s shambolic infrastructure program has reached a new low level with Dynnyrne residents receiving a letter of acquisition from the Government.

Shadow Treasurer David O’Byrne said residents had received a letter outlining that the Government will compulsorily acquire their properties to make way for a fifth lane on the Southern Outlet.

“Today’s revelations not only reveal another bungled infrastructure project but show how little regard the Liberals have for Tasmanians and their property,” Mr O’Byrne said.

“After seven years in Government the Liberals have shown little competence in getting infrastructure out the door, with a list of delayed projects their biggest build to date.

“The Liberals simply cannot be trusted to deliver the infrastructure Tasmania needs.”

Mr O’Byrne said the letters of acquisition sent to Dynnyrne residents were a cruel indication of the Liberals agenda.

“The Liberals have decided now, right before an election, is the time to rush through a fifth lane on the Southern outlet.

“These residents have a right to be angry, just last week they were celebrating Easter in their homes and now those very homes may be taken away from them and demolished.

“Tasmania needs traffic solutions to fix traffic issues, however rushed projects that disregard residents and their homes are not the answer.”
