‘The Queensland Beef Corridors group extend our congratulations to the incoming Australian government and look forward to working with you and the Queensland Government to deliver the beef corridors road upgrades for Central and Western Queensland,’ Queensland Beef Corridors spokesperson and Central Highlands Regional Council Mayor Kerry Hayes said.
The Queensland Beef Corridors group of councils are looking forward to implementing their six-year $809 million road infrastructure plan with the new government.
They have identified nine sections or 457 kilometres of unsealed feeder roads as a priority for sealing to achieve improved access, as well as filling gaps in the highway network for road train access to processing facilities and the Port of Gladstone.
‘Prime Minister Albanese has a long history of supporting regional Australia during his career and we look forward to continuing to be a priority for this nation,’ said Mayor Hayes.
The group launched the Queensland Beef Corridors campaign during Rockhampton’s Beef Australia event in May 2021.
