Queensland business calls on Labor to kickstart infrastructure pipeline

Tony Moore reports in the Brisbane Times (18.2.15) that Queensland’s bigger businesses want Labor to settle its infrastructure plans as quickly as possible to stop engineering and construction jobs going interstate.

‘More than 70 business leaders from construction, infrastructure, education, manufacturing and transport met with Labor’s new ministry on Tuesday morning.

‘Senior business figures gave the “meet and greet” a positive tick, but asked the Labor government to work quickly to ease the peaks and troughs in the construction industry.

‘Labor has promised to set up Building Queensland to prioritise infrastructure projects and produce an infrastructure plan for Queensland within 12 months.’
