C-Mon PM Turnbull announce Queensland’s Inland Rail route

Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries Mark Furner has urged Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to use his visit to Toowoomba to end the uncertainty that has plagued the Inland Rail route through Queensland.
"It’s long past the time to end the frustration for Queensland landholders, investors and industry stakeholders," Mr Furner said.
"The lives of farmers throughout the Darling Downs are on hold while Coalition MPs scrap among themselves and the Federal Government refuses to reveal its plans.
"The delays and indecision have gone on long enough."
Federal Infrastructure Minister Darren Chester announced a review into the proposed Inland Rail route from Yelarbon to Gowrie in November 2017 after lobbying by the Federal Member for Maranoa David Littleproud and others.
"Mr Littleproud was unhappy with the proposed route across the Condamine flood plain and campaigned for a review while he was a backbencher," Mr Furner said.
"It’s time to announce the results of the review, so Queensland farmers know whether the new Federal Agriculture Minister plans on standing up for their interests and the interests of his constituents in Canberra."
