Sourcing critical railway upgrade funding needs cool heads and smart solutions
SUNSHINE Coast's rail upgrade has been set back to square one. And Coast commuters are not happy.
It was revealed in the Daily earlier this week that the long-awaited fast track to Brisbane has been set back due to a change in government.
The latest blow was delivered by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk.
Responding to a question on notice put forward by Buderim MP Steve Dickson, Ms Palaszczuk revealed that Sunshine Coast rail duplication plans were back to square one.
"While this government will not be pursuing the Strong Choices asset sales campaign, the Beerburrum to Nambour rail upgrade project will continue to progress via the State's Project Assurance Framework with a view to having a Preliminary Evaluation, including Cost Benefit Analysis, completed by mid-late 2015," she said in response to the question asked on May 7.
