TONY PASIN MP
MEMBER FOR BARKER
SHADOW ASSISTANT MINISTER FOR INFRASTRUCTURE AND TRANSPORT
SA GOVERNMENT GOES MIA ON TRURO
In the final week of Federal Parliament for 2023, Member for Barker Tony Pasin said he’s been left surprised that the South Australian State Labor Government hasn’t taken the same approach as the Queensland Labor Government.
A delegation led by Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles MP descended on Capital Hill this week to fight for infrastructure projects important to Queenslanders.
“What a shame Minister Tom Koutsantonis couldn’t do the same and fight for the Truro Freight Route,” Mr Pasin said.
The Truro Freight Route is considered the first significant piece of the Greater Adelaide Bypass and forms a key part of the wider South Australian High Productivity Vehicle Network access strategy.
“As such a vital infrastructure project for South Australia I would have thought Minister Koutsantonis who likes to talk tough could have come to Canberra and fought for South Australia’s Infrastructure needs,” Mr Pasin said.
“Instead, I’ve heard very little about how the SA Infrastructure Minister and indeed the SA Premier, plan on fighting for the Truro Freight Route, they’ve just proved to all Australians that in Labor Party circles SA Labor is sadly irrelevant,” Mr Pasin said.
“Steven Miles is standing up for his State on infrastructure. Why can’t Tom and Peter be more like Steve?”
“Instead, the SA State Government is very noticeably missing in action,” Mr Pasin said.
