What is the ‘Missing Link’?
The Inland Rail project – currently under construction – will connect Melbourne to Brisbane; however, current plans have it terminating at Acacia Ridge in Brisbane’s southern suburbs.
This means freight earmarked for the Port of Brisbane must be trucked in on existing roads unless a dedicated Inland Rail link is constructed.
I’m fighting to deliver the Missing Link – a dedicated underground freight rail connection between the Inland Rail and Port of Brisbane.
Without this vital infrastructure, Brisbane’s roads will be gridlocked with a further 2.4 million trucks by 2035.
