Ah, the Chandler Highway Bridge.

27 January 2016

Ah, the Chandler Highway Bridge. Nice to look at, but a nightmare to cross. It belongs in the dictionary next to the word 'bottleneck'.

Politicians have made vague and empty promises to upgrade this bridge for decades. But that's not my style. Enough talk: we're getting on with it.

I'm proud to announce that we're building a new, SIX LANE bridge next to the old rattler, which will be retained for cyclists and pedestrians.

A new project planned, an old bridge preserved. Less time on the road, more time at home. Cranes in the sky, boots on the ground - jobs, jobs, jobs. It's a good day.
