Fix The M1

A Shorten Labor Government will invest $1 billion to widen the M1 from Eight Mile Plains to Daisy Hill to eight lanes, as well as widening the M1 to six lanes from Varsity Lakes to Tugun.


On top of that, Labor will also invest $2.24 billion towards the congestion-busting Cross River Rail project.


In supporting the M1 upgrade but ignoring the Cross River Rail project, the LNP is only doing half the job. Their plan will see locals spending more time on train platforms or stuck in traffic, rather than with loved ones.


Only Labor has made real investments in the M1. Labor invested $312 million in the Logan stretch of the M1 when last in Government, and we were the only ones who went to the last election with a viable commitment for the M1.


Unfortunately, all the LNP has done is give itself a pat on the back for finally realising the M1 is an issue after five years in Government.


Only Labor will build more roads and more rail – boosting infrastructure, creating jobs and cutting travel times for Queenslanders.
