Our PT priorities for the state election include:

3. North West Transport Corridor line - maximising the potential of CRR/SEQ Fast Rail.

4. Salisbury to Beaudesert commuter rail.  In limbo since 2010.

From my conversation with Kath Angus earlier this year it's a fairly safe assumption that the Greens will support most PT projects even if they don't explicitly propose them.

Thanks.  I had a look at the Greens policies on the web, I have only ticked the explicit ones.

RBoT Public transport score card for the 2020 Queensland State Election

24th October 2020

Good Morning,

One week out from the formal polling day, our public transport score card assessing policies from the major parties for the 2020 State Election against our priorities has Labor ranked 1st, Greens 2nd and LNP 3rd.

RAIL Back On Track is still looking for further policy announcements, particularly for bus network reform and acceleration of level crossing removals, and acceleration of DDA DSAPT compliance for railway stations to meet the December 2022 deadline.

From https://railbotforum.org/mbs/index.php?topic=14048.0



For your information.

Best wishes,

Robert

Has Deb announced any project relating to rail?

Seems Labor or also hoodwinking us with there $750 commitment to the second M1 with only $270 committed in the next term.

How? Presumably the construction contract will be running over a couple of terms, so payments to contractors would be occurring in the next term.

As the next term is a four year term, and they hope to start construction in June 2021, it will not take the full term (I would like to think) to construct 16km of 6 lane highway.

What it will take is $1.5B which is made up of $750 from the feds and $750 from the state, 50/50 commitment by each level of government.

This $1.5B was for stage one only was my understanding, so how can state Labor only commit to spending $270m over the four year term?

A little more detail would go a long way.
