QLD Budget snubs Cairns Shipping Development Project
The Queensland Government has effectively 'kicked the can down the road' on the Cairns Shipping Development Project.
It does not have any funding in the 2018-19 budget, because the Federal Government has not approved the project.
Any reference to the project in the budget papers is scant and found on pages 113 & 118 of the document. Click on the image to review it.
Indeed the summation of the budget for Far North Queensland overlooks the project. Click on the image to review it.
We must hold our State and Federal members accountable, as every year the project is delayed, our regional economy suffers lost earnings.
