A Tim Nicholls-led LNP Government will invest $215 million to deliver the $430 million Sunshine Coast Hospital Link Road.

LNP Leader Tim Nicholls said an LNP Government would deliver the project to ensure Sunshine Coast residents got the infrastructure they deserved.

“Sunshine Coast residents have suffered from a lack of new infrastructure projects for too long under Annastacia Palaszczuk,” Mr Nicholls said.

“Enough is enough. Only the LNP has the plans to build the roads, bridges and dams Queensland needs.

“That’s why I am committing $215 million to deliver the Hospital Link Road to make it safer for all Queenslanders travelling on our roads.

“By delivering this project, not only will we build the roads Queenslanders need but we will create local jobs.

“It’s because of the advocacy of our hardworking Sunshine Coast team that a Nicholls LNP Government will undertake the upgrade.”

LNP Shadow Transport Minister and Member for Glasshouse Andrew Powell said the LNP would improve access for staff and visitors to the hospital.

“Queenslanders are sick of tired of a do-nothing Government and this is why the LNP listened to the concerns of locals and committed to funding and building this upgrade,” Mr Powell said.

“The Hospital Link Road will ease traffic pressure on local roads such as Kawana Way, Nicklin Way and the Sunshine Motorway and will run between the Sunshine Motorway and Kawana Way.

“Instead of sitting around talking about it, the LNP has put its money where its mouth is and will actually deliver it.”

LNP Member for Kawana Jarrod Bleijie said the project would reduce congestion, improve access to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and improve safety for motorists.

“The Hospital Link Road will provide a new, direct access road to the hospital and reduce local congestion on the coast,” Mr Bleijie said.

“By building this road, an LNP Government will also improve safety at a busy motorway interchange and improve access between Mountain Creek, Kawana and Mooloolaba.

“The local community has been crying out for change, and this is why we have listened, planned and acted to deliver this new piece of road infrastructure.”

Mr Nicholls said an LNP Government would work with the Federal Government to deliver the upgrade and will seek a matching contribution from them.

“Unlike Annastacia Palaszczuk, I will work with the Federal Government to deliver the roads, bridges and dams Queensland needs,” Mr Nicholls said.
