The Greens have slammed the Victorian Labor Government's decision to partly privatise VicRoads and have said it will put the interests of private profit over the public good.

Victorian Greens spokesperson for transport, Sam Hibbins, said it was clear this government was addicted to privatisation and that it needed to stop before every public asset was sold off for a quick buck.

 

Quotes attributable to Victorian Greens spokesperson for transport, Sam Hibbins MP:

"Today's VicRoads announcement is yet another privatisation by the Victorian Labor Government that will put the interests of private profit over the public good.

"Neoliberalism is alive and well in the state of Victoria and the Victorian Labor Government is addicted to privatisation.

"It's time we had a debate on our state's economic ideology before every public asset that turns a buck is sold off by this government."
