Courier Mail reported Mr Nicholls acknowledged a second river crossing was needed in Brisbane, but not before 2026.
“We’ve said all along a second rail crossing across the Brisbane River is going to be required,” Mr Nicholls said.
“The Infrastructure Australia report says it’s not required until 2026 and it is a matter of prioritising where your funds go.
“I understand what the people of Queensland said at the last election campaign. For me it is off the table.”
While Labor has committed to building the rail tunnel and commenced early construction work this year, the project was not included in the LNP’s infrastructure plan released this week.
RACQ has long supported the Cross River Rail project saying it was vital for the growth of south east Queensland.
Club spokesperson Paul Turner said the congestion busting project would future proof the river city.
“Both levels of government need to understand future economic growth relies on a fully functioning transport network and Cross River Rail is vital to this.”
