Lovell says Liberals’ 25% Regional Infrastructure Guarantee a win for country Victoria.

The Liberal Member for Northern Victoria Wendy Lovell says that regional Victoria will finally get its fair share of infrastructure funding under an elected Matthew Guy Coalition Government.

The 25% Regional Infrastructure Guarantee, implemented in the first term of a Liberal Coalition Government, will deliver at least a quarter of all new government capital investment to regional communities.

Ms Lovell said that regional Victoria had missed out under Daniel Andrews and Labor, with less than 13% of capital spending in the 2022-23 State Budget estimated to be directly allocated to regional Victoria and just 11.4% allocated in the 2021-22 State Budget for major state asset investment (projects of $100 million or more).

Ms Lovell said the new policy would deliver the new roads, rail, hospitals and other infrastructure that regional communities deserve.

Ms Lovell said the Andrews Labor Government invests twice as much in Melbourne than it does in the regions and an elected Liberal Coalition Government under Matthew Guy will ensure that all of Victoria will recover and rebuild, not just metropolitan Melbourne.

Comments attributable to Member for Northern Victoria Wendy Lovell:

“The 25% Regional Infrastructure Guarantee shows the Liberal Party in government are committed to turning around years of regional neglect by the Andrews Labor Government.

“Only a Liberal Coalition Government led by Matthew Guy will ensure regional Victoria gets its fair share of infrastructure funding to help all Victorians to recover, rebuild and thrive.”
