Abbott's building bonanza must bridge the gaps

A new wave of public investment will help to diversify Australia's economy after the end of the mining boom. But the Coalition would be wise to spend more on railways, not just roads.

During the election campaign, Kevin Rudd told a people's forum that he was "in the building business".

Tony Abbott countered that he wants to be remembered as the "Infrastructure Prime Minister"."Let's not say I'm Mr Cut cut cut. I want to be Mr Build build build, to create more jobs, jobs, jobs."
