Experts behind two controversial Vic roads

The same experts who did the business case for Melbourne’s axed East West Link also did the modelling for the controversial West Gate Tunnel, a transport planner says.

William McDougall, a consultant on the West Gate Tunnel toll road project, has told a senate committee he was “surprised” to see the experts employed after Labor rubbished their work on the dumped East West Link.

Labor paid more than $1 billion not to build that road but shortly after taking power in 2014 announced plans for the $5.5 billion West Gate Tunnel.
