PM Tony Abbott supports Capital Metro light rail in Canberra

Prime Minister Tony Abbott provides yet more support for the ACT light rail project in contrast to his Canberra Liberal comrades. When asked a question about whether the federal government would fund an extension to the Gold Coast light rail, Prime Minister Abbott praised the ACT Governments approach to Capital Metro funding by using asset recycling money and the Federal Governments $60 million contribution.
