Never before seen concepts of the LNP’s New Bradfield Scheme released

Sunday, 14th June 2020

LNP Leader Deb Frecklington today released never before seen concepts of the LNP’s New Bradfield Scheme.

“Now more than ever, we need to be backing visionary projects like the New Bradfield Scheme to build a stronger economy,” Ms Frecklington said.

“Queensland’s biggest-ever, drought-busting infrastructure project is big, bold and ambitious and if I am Premier I will deliver it.

“It will deliver tens of thousands of new secure jobs, more water for farmers, enough hydro-electric power for 800,000 homes, and irrigate an area of Outback Queensland larger than Tasmania.

“The LNP’s economic plan is clear – we will invest in growth and supercharge the regions to get Queensland working again.

“Projects like the New Bradfield Scheme will be funded from the LNP’s Queensland Infrastructure Fund.”

Fast facts:

The New Bradfield Scheme dam:

  • would be the biggest in Australia with a storage capacity of at least 14,000 GL – 28 Sydney harbours
  • the tropical monsoonal conditions mean the dam could be filled in just 5 years.
  • it’ll have a capacity 7 times greater than the Hells Gate Dam Proposal. 
  • will irrigate an area larger than Tasmania.
