Show Notes
A refreshing change – my colleague Emily Sims hosts this week’s show. Dr Sophie Stirrup (Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University & former Dept of Treasury) provides an insiders account to Victoria’s early 90s privatisation agenda. From this we hear about the formative days of Transurban, the risks behind the CityLink tollway and set the reasoning for the new Western Distributor infrastructure spend. Thanks listeners for getting us to our radiothon target. That helps me through the winter blues =]
