Member for Shellharbour Anna Watson today said the Premier is living in a dream world after claiming during Question Time this afternoon that the upgrade of the Shellharbour Hospital and construction of the Albion Park Rail Bypass are “underway”.
Ms Watson said despite the claim by the Premier during Question Time and after 12 months since the election no upgrade of the Shellharbour Hospital or construction of the Albion Park Rail Bypass is “underway”.
“In fact, the Premier has voted against my motions in the Legislative Assembly calling on the Government to set a clear date for the start of both projects and a timetable for their delivery.
“The Premier seems to think that putting out a press release means that a hospital is upgraded or a bypass built.
“As patients continue to wait at the Shellharbour Hospital for treatment and motorists continue to suffer more congestion on the Princes Highway at Albion Park Rail, they can now ponder whether the Premier is living in a dream world”, she said.
Ms Watson has called for the upgrade of Shellharbour Hospital to start by the 1 July 2016 and construction of the Albion Park Rail Bypass to start by the 1 July 2017.
