Just build it! Labor needs to stop making excuses & build Sunny Coast rail
LNP Shadow Transport Minister said Sunshine Coast residents were sick of the Palaszczuk Labor Government’s excuses and just want a new rail line built to end their commuting nightmares.
“Labor promised to build the Sunshine Coast rail duplication way back in 2009 when Anastacia Palaszczuk was the Transport Minister in the Bligh Government and here we are almost a decade later and nothing’s happened,” Mr Minnikin said. * see below 2009 advertisement
“Today Labor’s at it again, claiming it’ll build the Nambour to Beerburrum rail duplication but only after it’s built a $15 billion rail line in Jackie Trad’s electorate.
“So after years of broken promises and nightmare commutes to work and to see family, Labor’s telling Sunshine Coast residents to wait again – what an insult.
“The LNP committed to building this desperately-needed second rail line to the Sunshine Coast before the last election and our message to Annastacia Palaszcczuk is simple – just build it.”
