Just recently I called on the Palaszczuk Labor Government to stop the politics on M1 funding and commit to fixing the problem.
Main Roads Minister Bailey must look at this as more than a fight with Federal Government over funding a single project and instead think about how we can solve the congestion problems across the coast.
We all need to advocate for, and commit to, fixing the whole problem, not just moving it to the next section of road.
I am interested in seeing the government putting together a holistic plan for our traffic issues as the Gold Coast will continue to grow and a patchwork of projects isn’t the solution.
The M1 between Burleigh and Palm Beach is already a heavily congested bottleneck so this will only see it become a total carpark.
Upgrading the Mudgeeraba to Exit 85 stretch on the M1 isn’t going to solve anything by itself, we don’t want to just push traffic further south.
The State Budget handed down in June allocated just $10 million for planning the M1 (Mudgeeraba to Exit 85) project with no mention of the 20% needed in the funding arrangement the Palaszczuk Labor Government are seeking.
Please sign the petition and share with as many people as possible.
