THE HON ALAN TUDGE MP
MINISTER FOR POPULATION, CITIES AND URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE
04 August 2020
It’s hardly surprising that the Queensland Government is playing politics with the Haughton Pipeline but they’re doing it at the expense of Townsville.
Queensland committed to this deal, knowing full well the parameters surrounding it and what it entailed.
The backflip is coming from them.
Phil Thompson and the Morrison Government have been unwavering in our support of Townsville and this project.
Phil has been a tireless advocate for the people of Townsville and has already delivered on our commitments for a new stadium, upgrade of the port and upgrades to the Bruce Highway.
The funding will of course remain in the Townsville region and our commitment to the community remains unchanged.
