‘Utterly disgraceful’ West Gate Tunnel blowout ‘needs a royal commission’

Broadcaster at 6PR Oliver Peterson says a royal commission is needed into how the Andrews government could allow a multi-billion dollar cost blowout over its West Gate Tunnel infrastructure project.

"You need a royal commission into how this can go so disastrously wrong," Mr Peterson told Sky News host Peter Gleeson.

"It is not some small overrun or budget blowout – it is a disaster, it is a catastrophe – it is completely and utterly disgraceful.

"So whether or not the Victorian taxpayers will cop this one on the chin, I don’t think so, they should be demanding answers … right all the way to the top at Premier Daniel Andrews."
