Tenants not evicted, Labor still allergic to new bridge

In a desperate attempt to build their continued opposition to the much needed Bridgewater Bridge, Labor has stooped to new lows.

There have been zero evictions of State Growth acquired properties – they have been vacated as the leases expired.

If anyone had needed a lease to be extended, they would have been.

Labor should stop playing politics on this important infrastructure project and taking advantage of others to spread falsehoods.

Clearly, having taken money from John Howard for the Bridgewater Bridge and spent it elsewhere, Labor is still allergic to the new bridge and infrastructure projects our state need.
