Coali­tion fails to de­liver

Pilbara News - - Opinion - Tracey He­im­berger, Dampier

The new Kar­ratha Health Cam­pus was promised by the Lib­eral/ Na­tional coali­tion in the 2010-11 elec­tion com­mit­ments.

It was sup­posed to be com­pleted by the 2014-15 fi­nan­cial year.

The health cam­pus was a ma­jor com­mit­ment. It is now 2017 and the health cam­pus looks nowhere near com­plete. When will it be com­pleted?

Royal Perth Hospi­tal was also promised im­prove­ment plans. Those plans and com­mit­ments were with­drawn and the plans were changed, due to blowout in costs as­so­ci­ated with other projects.

Perth Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal was de­layed as well. The project time lines and the bud­get were blown out and well over the orig­i­nal com­mit­ment. There were also is­sues with the unsafe sup­ply of as­bestos and lead con­tam­i­na­tion.

What a joke. We need a po­lit­i­cal party who is go­ing to hon­our com­mit­ments they make.

The man­age­ment of these im­por­tant health projects demon­strates that the Lib­eral Party clearly are not com­pe­tent and do not have any idea what they are do­ing; es­pe­cially with an area as im­por­tant as health.
