East west link: What do you think? Luke Henriques-Gomes 27 November 2014

The future of the contentious east west link hinges on Saturday’s election result. The Coalition government’s $6.8 billion project will proceed if Victorians re-elect Denis Napthine as premier.

But if Labor wins, Daniel Andrews has promised to scrap the tunnel, a position first taken by the Greens.

The cross-city tunnel would connect the Eastern Freeway and CityLink but continues to divide the community before any tarmac has even been laid.

Three inner-city councils have launched legal action against the government’s handling of the project, while Labor’s promise not to honour the contract has come under fire from the opposition.

Ahead of Saturday’s poll The Weekly Review wants to know: Will the east west link decide your vote?
