Questions without notice – Rail

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler) (14:36): My question is addressed to the Prime Minister. Is the Prime Minister aware that Brisbane’s Cross River Rail project was approved by Infrastructure Australia in 2012, was the subject of a detailed agreement between the federal and Queensland governments in 2013 and was funded in the 2013 budget? Why is the Prime Minister purporting to support public transport in our cities while pretending that this essential project is not ready to go?
