Motorway misery makes case for LNP’s Second M1

Friday 14 August, 2020

Major congestion on the M1 today has again proved why a Second M1 is urgently needed between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said.

“The M1 grinds to a halt most days, but it’s especially frustrating for Queenslanders to be sat in jams on a day when they just want to relax,” Ms Frecklington said.

“Drivers have had enough, which is why the LNP will build a Second M1 to get Gold Coast traffic moving again.

“The project has been stuck in the slow lane for years under Labor, but an LNP Government will commit $550m to the project to get shovels in the ground as soon as possible.

“The LNP will bust congestion in South-East Queensland and get our roads moving again.

“Congestion-busting infrastructure is also needed to stimulate our economy and create jobs, so an LNP Government won’t waste a day getting the Second M1 started.

“An LNP Government will make sure that Queensland businesses, and their workers, are first in line for infrastructure projects like the Second M1.

“Queensland has the highest unemployment rate in the nation, with more than 234,000 people officially out of work, so jobs are key to the LNP’s infrastructure plan.

“Only the LNP has a plan to stimulate the economy, create a decade of secure jobs and drag Queensland out of recession.

“Only an LNP Government will get Queensland working again.”
