Questions Without Notice – Infrastructure – Wednesday, 24 October 2018

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (14:20): My question is addressed to the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development. I refer to reports in the Herald Sun on 2 September that, in the budget, funding for 10 infrastructure projects—including the Rockhampton Ring Road, the Mackay Ring Road stage 2, the Linkfield Road overpass and the Western Sydney rail—were all secretly approved but not announced. At a time when road toll is rising and congestion in our cities is worsening, why is the government sitting on these projects and not delivering them?
