Inland rail a trifecta for Toowoomba region: mayor
A GROUP of mayors from the Darling Downs and Surat Basin has backed sourcing private investment to complete the Melbourne-to-Brisbane inland rail project.
The Downs and Surat Basin Alliance of Councils believe private investment is needed to get the long-awaited project completed.
"We attend forum after forum and we just don't know who to believe any more," Goondiwindi Regional Council Mayor Graeme Scheu said.
"It is obvious that state governments have no immediate funding and there was very little commitment in the federal budget, so we believe it is worth investigating the possibility of private sector,"
Cr Scheu said the privately built Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport was an example of what the private sector could achieve.
"With the distinct lack of funding available from all forms of government, it would seem a no brainer that you would at least investigate the possibility of a public private partnership," he said.
