LNP sets out Coast project priorities
THE Sunshine Coast LNP MPs say they have been listening.
And a new brochure, showing the "strong plan for a brighter future", demonstrates they have heard what the Coast wants to develop into the future.
The priorities identified in the brochure largely mirror those highlighted by the Sunshine Coast Council, business and community leaders.
The North Coast rail line, Bruce Hwy, Mooloolah River crossing, integrated public transport, Maroochydore City Centre and Sunshine Coast Airport are on the list.
Member for Buderim Steve Dickson, the National Parks, Sports and Racing Minister, said the Coast's six MPs had set out their "highest priorities".
"We want to let people know, unitedly, all Sunshine Coast (LNP) MPs are behind this - we want to deliver on behalf of our residents," he said.
He says people need to "put their opinion forward" because "we are not going to get them all".
Sunshine Coast Daily bloggers have indicated a strong preference for the upgrading of the Bruce Hwy.
Mr Dickson said the government had put up the priorities it could "envisage".
He said the document also highlighted what the Newman Government had "been delivering for the Sunshine Coast".
This included the Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital - "delivered without excuses and without delays" - a freeze on family car registration and "slashing Labor's scheduled 15% public transport fare hikes by half".
