JACKIE Trad’s purchase of a property near the route of Cross River Rail came just seven days before the Government decided on which bidders would build the multi-billion dollar project.
Property searches show the contract for the purchase of the three-bedroom Woolloongabba home, which has sparked an integrity crisis for the Deputy Premier, was signed on March 27.
Diary entries for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Ms Trad show the Cabinet Budget Review Committee, the Government’s most senior decision-making body, met on April 3 with the winning bidders announced the next day.
The decision confirmed the 10.2 kilometre rail line between Bowen Hills and Dutton Park would run along the original planned route and include a new station at Boggo Road, a short distance from Ms Trad’s under-contract property purchase.
The Courier-Mail revealed last week the Deputy Premier failed to declare the purchase, which was made through a company she co-owns with her husband, on State Parliament’s Register of Members’ Interests.
Ms Trad committed on Friday to sell the $695,500 property for no profit after obtaining advice about conflicts of interest from Integrity Commissioner Nikola Stepanov.
