My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads. It is about the longstanding desire of my constituents in Yarrawonga and surrounding areas for a new Yarrawonga-Mulwala bridge crossing to be constructed – particularly on the ‘green route’ location alongside the existing railway line.

I ask the Minister, especially in the wake of a visit to the area (and public comments) from the Deputy Prime Minister on 1 November, if she will now join the Federal Government and the Moira and Federation Councils in committing to fund this project?  Alternatively, if not, why not?
