Transportation and Politics in Australia

I'm not much into Australian politics but it's interesting to see how transportation is playing a key role in local elections. "Only Labor will fix Chandler Highway Bridge." versus "Only Liberal will build the Melbourne airport rail link." I actually think both the new Chandler Highway Bridge and the Melbourne airport rail link need to be built, no matter who is in power. The new Chandler Highway Bridge will have more local impact while the new Melbourne airport rail link will have more city-wide impact. A through cost benefit analysis needs to be done to prioritize such large investments.
