QUEENSLAND Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has told State Parliament the Labor Government never committed funding to the upgrade of the Urraween and Maryborough Hervey Bay Rd intersection.
Hervey Bay MP Ted Sorensen yesterday asked whether the Government would honour a commitment made by Labor candidate Tony Gubbins at a Chamber of Commerce breakfast that the upgrade would be funded under the renamed Royalties to Riches program.
Ms Palaszczuk said the Department of State Development had never received an application.
She said the commitment to fund the upgrade under the program was an LNP election commitment.
She also said that she had been advised by Department of State Development that the transport project in the Fraser Coast Regional Council area approved under the fourth round of Royalties for the Regions program was for the Scrub Hill Rd, Wide Bay Dve and Burrum Heads Rd intersection and the government would complete that project.
