Gladys Berejiklian plans to go hard on infrastructure

PRESUMPTIVE incoming NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has told the Daily Telegraph she plans to "go even harder" on building infrastructure around the state.

She told reporters of her plan to make sure infrastructure projects are felt all around the state and not just in Sydney. 

"I want to make it very clear from day one that we are a government for everyone," she told The Saturday Telegraph.

"In areas like infrastructure I want to go harder.

"The community wants to see action on the ground so not only will I maintain the current pace, but I will go harder.

"I think we are smashing it as a government in terms of economic performance and infrastructure spend but not everybody feels part of that success story.

"No matter where you live in this state, you will share in the massive success that we have demonstrated, and much of that success is because of Mike Baird and the strong team he's held together.

"I have every intention of continuing to do what we do well, in a way where everybody feels that they are part of the success story in NSW."

The 46-year-old has an uncontested run at the Premier's office after Andrew Constance and Rob Stokes decided they would not be running against her.
