More than 21,500 Queensland jobs will be supported by a record $23 billion investment in roads and transport infrastructure over the next four years, the Queensland Government announced yesterday. 

Transport and Main Roads Minister, Mark Bailey, said that the Queensland Transport and Roads Investment Program (QTRIP) 2019-20 to 2022-23, released yesterday, would continue the Palaszczuk Government’s focus on job-creating infrastructure investments, particularly in regional Queensland.

“Regional Queensland is the big winner in this infrastructure budget because Queensland’s regional towns and cities are the engine room of our state’s economy,” said Minister Bailey.

“When our regions thrive, Queensland thrives, so this budget will ensure tens of thousands of jobs are created in the regions, supporting their population growth and economic development.

“More than $14.5 billion of this record QTRIP will be spent outside the Brisbane City, Ipswich City and Redland City local government areas.”

According to the latest announcement, Queensland’s boaties will have their local facilities maintained and upgraded thanks to more than $100 million allocation for boat ramps, pontoons, jetties, floating walkways and dredging over the next four years.

Maritime projects include:

  • $23.3 million upgrading of Clump Point boating infrastructure at Mission Beach;
  • $13.2 million for navigation access and safety initiatives on Gold Coast’s waterways;
  • $9 million dredging to deepen the Molongle Creek channel;
  • $4 million construction of the Scarborough barge ramp at Scarborough Boat Harbor;
  • $3.5 million construction of the Shute Harbor Road boating facility;
  • $3.5 million for boating infrastructure on Gold Coast’s waterways;
  • $1.4 million Corbetts Landing boat ramp upgrade and floating walkway;
  • $1.5 million upgrade of the Dohles Rocks Road boat ramp.
