The Palaszczuk Government's failure to invest in infrastructure is the biggest single brake on the construction industry, a disturbing new report has revealed today.

More than 55 per cent of respondents to the Queensland Infrastructure Conditions and Business Sentiment report said Labor was holding back growth.

Liberal National Party Shadow Infrastructure Minister Andrew Powell MP called on  Annastacia Palaszczuk to take immediate action to clear the biggest blockage to business growth – Labor's lack of an investment plan.

"While long-term infrastructure investment may not be important to Annastacia Palaszczuk's union bosses, it's vital to maintaining a strong industry in Queensland," Mr Powell said.

"Unlike Labor, the LNP has an economic plan to grow our economy now and into the future.

"The LNP built the first M1, linking Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and under our economic plan it will be an LNP Government that will build a second M1.

"Pushing the Palaszczuk Labor Government's petty politics aside, our economic plan commits to getting on and delivering the Sunshine Coast rail duplication.

"The LNP's economic plan provides the long-term certainty being called for by industry and will deliver the congestion-busting infrastructure to get Queenslanders home sooner and safer.

"Labor's ideological Buy Queensland Policy also registered as a major concern for the industry – one respondent outlined that it was the last thing the industry needs.

"Instead of doubling down on bad policy, Palaszczuk needs to admit failure and take steps to improve the system."
