NSW Opposition Leader, Michael Daley, has renewed his call for the Berejiklian Government to immediately halt plans to demolish the Sydney Football Stadium in early January.
Ahead of his a regional tour of NSW beginning in the South East today, Mr Daley said the people of NSW should decide at the next NSW election whether they want a new Sydney Football Stadium in Sydney’s east or more funding for schools and hospitals across the state.
In a medai announcement this morning Mr Daley said "The next election on 23 March will be a referendum on the Berejiklian Government’s lavish stadium plans and its intention to take the wrecking ball to the Sydney Football Stadium while everyone is on holidays."
Four months from the next election and three months from caretaker period Mr Daley is demanding that the Sydney Cricket Ground Trust and the Berejiklian Government immediately halt demolition of the Sydney Football Stadium.
"To proceed would be a scandalous waste of taxpayers’ money. I know that people in rural and regional NSW want to see a government that takes real action on jobs, healthcare and infrastructure and funds schools and hospitals in regional NSW, not on Sydney stadiums.” said the NSW Opposition Leader Michael Daley
Mr Daley said the Liberals cannot be trusted with major infrastructure projects with more than $10 billion in cost blowouts for WestConnex, the Sydney Gateway and the Sydney Light Rail alone.
