The chairman of a major transport company says the north-west city of Mount Isa should be part of the Northern Territory, instead of Queensland.
Everald Compton from the Australian Transport and Energy Corridor says the city's potential as an industrial and mining hub has not been realised and it has been grossly neglected by state and federal governments.
He says that is reflected by the condition of region's rail infrastructure.
"The railway to Mount Isa is simply a disgrace there has never been a sufficient investment in it, it can't carry the minerals that want to come out of there now, it can't carry the cattle and other products that need to come out, no-one has been willing to make an investment in it," he said.
