Cross River Rail project in hands of statutory authority

Amy Remeikis reports in the Brisbane Times (7.4.16) on the state government’s latest plans to secure funding and planning certainty for the proposed Cross River Rail project in Brisbane.

‘The latest incarnation of Cross River Rail has a route and a promise to keep the politics out of it.

‘What it doesn’t have is funding, a business case, or even a plan on how the estimated  $5.2 billion project would be delivered.

‘But if the power balance shifts at the next election, the next government will have to dismantle a (yet to be established) Statutory Authority charged with delivering the project before it scraps it for a third time.’
