Alistair Coe "There are no circumstances whatsoever in which the Canberra Liberals will go ahead with light rail. Absolutely none. If we get elected in October of 2016 it will be to stop light rail."
Reporter "Why are you painting yourself into a corner over this though? If you get to the next election and construction is two or three months down the track and you have to pay a compensation fee for cancelling the contracts, it may be cheaper to just let it go?"
Alistair Coe "I simply do not accept that it's going to be cheaper to allow light rail to go ahead than to simply stop the project."
