An argument over the approvals process for the $944 million Brisbane Metro between the state government and Brisbane City Council has seen the lord mayor Adrian Schrinner accuse Transport Minister Mark Bailey of withholding federal funds from the council.
On Wednesday afternoon, Cr Schrinner launched a broadside against Transport Minister Mark Bailey for requiring the planned Cultural Centre Metro stop to be moved to a site under the Brisbane Convention Centre.
The state government released new draft images of what South Brisbane's notorious Grey and Melbourne Streets intersection could look like if Brisbane Metro was moved to beneath the Convention Centre.
Mr Bailey responded by saying the proposed shift from an underground Metro station beneath the Cultural Centre to beneath the Convention Centre would give new life to the notorious Cultural Centre precinct intersection.
Cr Schrinner decried the move as a political delaying tactic the same day that the council had closed procurement tenders, but Mr Bailey dismissed that claim and said the shift from the Cultural Centre to the Convention Centre was necessary.
