LNP Deputy Leader Tim Mander said Queenslanders’ holiday traffic misery is set to keep worsening without major infrastructure investment from the Palaszczuk Government.

Motorists faced mayhem on the M1 yesterday and traffic is expected to be heavy again as more residents head to beaches today.

“Queenslanders just want to relax with their friends and family, but many will be spending hours stuck in traffic because of our growing congestion crisis,” Mr Mander said.

“Unlike Annastacia Palaszczuk, the LNP has a plan to beat this massive problem.

“We’re committed to upgrading the M1 and to building a second M1 to cut congestion between the Gold Coast and Brisbane ­– our two biggest cities.

“We also plan to six-lane the Bruce Highway all the way to Caloundra and to investigate the creation of new routes to cut local congestion.

“It’s a bold plan ­– but we need urgent and ambitious action to solve the problems that have been caused by decades of underinvestment by successive Labor Governments.

“Our state’s population has surged in recent years, but Labor has spent less on new infrastructure than any Government in living memory.

“Queenslanders are paying more tax and our debt is heading for $83.5 billion, but we don’t even have decent roads.

“Labor can spin it as much as they like, but they have lost control of our congestion crisis.”
