David O’Byrne MP, the Labor Member for Franklin and Minister for Infrastructure, recently met with the Kingston Bypass Action Group at his Kingston office, to allay fears in the community that the Bypass project would not be completed on time.
“These stories, emanating from the office of Shadow Infrastructure Spokesman Rene Hidding are complete works of fiction, and indicates what a tenuous grip on reality the state opposition has,” Mr O’Byrne said.
“The Kingston Bypass project is actually ahead of schedule. Weather permitting, we are hoping for a pre-Christmas opening.”
“I appreciate the time that members of the Kingston Bypass Action Committee have put into lobbying for this project, from the very early days, right through until now, with the project nearing completion,” he said.
