Labor has come under fire for dragging its feet on projects such as Adani’s Carmichael coal mine and Brisbane City Council’s Brisbane Metro.
Anger as new Inland Rail map reveals route
Infrastructure Association Queensland CEO Steve Abson has listed the $10 billion inland rail project as another project the Government seemed unable to say yes to at this stage.

“It seems to be an emerging trend that projects are being held up because of the state’s involvement,” Mr Abson said.
“The failure to sign an intergovernmental agreement is leaving a lot of companies exposed who would be lining up to bid on one of the major projects in Queensland which is the inland rail PPP (public-private partnership).”
QLD Labor Minster Mark Bailey defended the Palaszczuk Government’s handling of the project. Picture: AAP Image/Jono SearleTransport Minister Mark Bailey said there was a range of issues that had to be resolved before the deal was signed.
