Steven Marshall’s ‘Great Southern Broken Promise’

Steven Marshall has broken yet another election promise by dumping his signature tourism policy the Great Southern Bike Trail.

At the last election, Steven Marshall promised South Australians that he would build a “world-class tourism cycling trail” between Adelaide to Melbourne which would “inject millions of dollars into our economy”.
 
He said the trail “would be one of the world’s most iconic, diverse and scenic cycling trails”.
 
However, today it has been revealed that he will break his promise to South Australians and dump the project following a ‘confidential study’.
 
The Marshall Liberal Government is now refusing to release the feasibility study, or detail how much money has already been spent on the dumped project, claiming “commercial in confidence”.
 
The Adelaide-Melbourne bike trail is the latest in a string of broken election promises from the Marshall Liberal Government, joining GlobeLink, the tram right hand turn and his promise he didn’t have a privatisation agenda.
