Opposition leader phones openline to refute light rail claims: ‘I can’t rip it up and that’s that.’

State opposition leader Michael Daley has phoned the open line to refute claims made by the Transport Minister.

In an interview with Sky News, Mr Daley said he’ll “have to some very hard decisions” to make about the light rail if elected.

Minister Constance has been doing several interviews since, claiming Labor will rip up the multi-billion dollar project if they’re voted into power in March.

“That’s not what the city needs to hear,” says Mr Constance.

But Mr Daley has phoned the openline to refute those claims.

He tells Steve Price it’s simply not possible to scrap the controversial piece of infrastructure.

“If I become the Premier, I cannot rip the light rail up, even if I wanted to.

“The Liberals have signed a 15-year deal with a private operator… I can’t rip it up and that’s that.”
