Ringwood electorate level crossing removals

Ringwood electorate level crossing removals

Will FOWLES (Ringwood) (19:42): (10) I find myself in the invidious position of standing between a very excited new bunch of parliamentarians and a cold beer over the road, so I am going to make this very brief indeed.

My adjournment matter is directed to the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure, and I ask the minister to arrange a briefing on the Bedford–Dublin roads level crossing project, to provide an update on the project so far and the next steps as we make Ringwood level crossing free. In the interests of brevity I am not going to talk about how my opponent in the election spent a lot of time bagging the level crossing project and then suddenly found out it was fantastic. I am not going to spend a whole bunch of time talking about how those opposite run down these programs – they just dip into them the whole time. I am not going to spend all my time doing that. I am going to finish very quickly and wish you all a very merry Christmas and a safe and happy new year.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Yes, a merry Christmas to us all.
