Sourcing critical railway upgrade funding needs cool heads and smart solutions
MEMBERS of the southeast Queensland council of mayors have joined forces to endorse a campaign asking for federal funding to extend the city's railway network right down to the Gold Coast Airport.
The mayors, from the Gold Coast to the Sunshine Coast and west to Toowoomba, identified the rail project as one of seven key projects crucial to the state in the unprecedented move.
Gold Coast Mayor Ron Clarke said the State Government had planned to continue the railway down, but the process needed to be sped up.
''Our current and future residents deserve a much better public transport system and the commonwealth has a major role to play in delivering it,'' he said.
''If the commonwealth does not take a leadership role in delivering this national priority infrastructure project ... it will simply be put off to the never, never.''
A petition will also be launched.
