Questions Without Notice

Road and Transport Infrastructure

Mr KING: My question is of the Minister for Transport and Main Roads. Can the minister outline
the government's road and transport infrastructure jobs plan and is the minister aware of any alternative
approaches?

Mr BAILEY: The member has always been a very passionate and strong supporter of road and
rail investment in Queensland. At estimates I outlined our seventh record road and rail infrastructure
budget of $29.7 billion. That is nearly 50 per cent more than the last budget of the Newman government.
This is $300 million above our projected expenditure in the previous financial year. We are getting a lot
done. More than 25,000 jobs are related to this expenditure. We are seeing huge commitments on the
Bruce Highway, the M1 and the second M1 and a rail revolution. There is a $3.5 billion commitment to
rail—and not just the Cross River Rail project but also the Kuraby to Beenleigh and the Sunshine Coast
rail line duplication projects. There are huge commitments in rail.

People would recall that at last year's estimates I did not get a single question from the former
member for Callide—zero. Incredibly, this year there were no questions whatsoever to the CEO of
Queensland Rail. We have a rail revolution going on in Queensland and there was not one question
from those opposite of the Queensland Rail CEO in four hours of questioning. It is extraordinary. There
were no questions of the QR CEO from the member for Chatsworth, from the member for Toowoomba
North, from the member for Gregory and from the member for Callide. We have to have some sympathy
for the new member for Callide; he is finding his feet.

This is even more amazing when we consider that we had just released the South-East
Queensland Rail Connect operational plan. There was not a question to QR CEO. The member for
Chatsworth bagged Cross River Rail for four hours and then endorsed it that afternoon. If only we had
seen that approach from the Leader of the Opposition in terms of the laptop. If only he would come
clean and admit that he has been misleading this House and others for five months given the report
from the CCC. If only he would come clean on the laptop and start walking the walk instead of just
talking the talk on integrity. This is just like the commitment from the opposition in terms of the chair of
CCC. They say five years but their committee members only endorse three years.

It is hard to top that. One thing that did top that yesterday was the speech by the new member
for Callide bagging the containers for change program. He bagged his opposition leader's position in
his first speech. The Leader of the Opposition's expression as he listened to the member for Callide's
first speech was like an Easter Island statute. It was extraordinary. We know the LNP is not a container
for change; they are a container for cuts. They always have and always will be. It is in their DNA. We
know that they will do it again if they get another chance

Question on Notice
No. 987
Asked on 12 October 2022

MR S MINNIKIN ASKED MINISTER FOR TRANSPORT AND MAIN ROADS (HON M BAILEY)

QUESTION:

With reference to comments by the Director General at Estimates regarding the European Train
Control System project, listed in QTRIP with a value of $717m, that the total project budget is
$764m with the difference made up of funding previously held by Queensland Rail and the Cross
River Rail Delivery Authority—
Will the Minister list all other projects in the current QTRIP that are being partly funded by another
entity, together with the entity's name and the amount of the funding they hold?
