Letter to the Editor - Infrastructure cuts Sunshine Coast

Published:

NOTE: This article is older than 12 months

The Palaszczuk Labor Government is continuing to fail Queenslanders, with new treasury figures revealing they have cut almost $4 billion per year on vital infrastructure investments.

What is worse is the do-nothing Treasurer is raiding millions from public servants superannuation funds and still cutting infrastructure spending.

Under this Government, key projects such as Sunshine Motorway Mooloolah River Interchange and Beerburrum to Landsborough Rail Duplication have stalled due to cuts to infrastructure investment.

Queenslanders have missed out on $7.4 billion of infrastructure investment over the last two years under the Palaszczuk Government

The Government is investing $3.8 billion a year less than the former LNP Government on infrastructure, yet taking money from public servants superannuation.

These figures make it very clear Annastacia Palaszczuk’s cuts to infrastructure have hurt the state’s economy and are costing Queenslanders their jobs.

Only the LNP will Build a Better Queensland by building the roads, bridges and dams we need.

Scott Emerson
Shadow Treasurer
