Media Release: LNP to spend $45 million to upgrade Cleveland-Redland Bay Road

  • The LNP Government will spend $45 million upgrading two critical sections of the Cleveland-Redland Bay Road
  • Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor have absolutely no plan to fix traffic congestion crippling the southeast
  • Only the LNP has a plan to build the infrastructure Queensland needs

A Tim Nicholls-led LNP Government will spend $45 million upgrading two critical sections of Cleveland-Redland Bay Road as part of its plan to build the infrastructure Queensland needs.

LNP Leader Tim Nicholls said Labor had failed to invest in job-creating infrastructure projects across the state and the Cleveland and Redland Bay regions were no exception.

“LNP MPs Matt McEachan and Mark Robinson have been relentless champions of these projects because they know how important they are for their communities,” Mr Nicholls said.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor have absolutely no plan to fix traffic congestion crippling the southeast, let alone on the bayside.”

LNP Redlands MP Matt McEachan said $25 million would be spent upgrading Cleveland-Redland Bay Rd between Boundary St and Magnolia Parade.

“This critical upgrade will go a long way to easing the traffic congestion in the area,” Mr McEachan said.

“I am proud to be part of an LNP team that listens and acts on community concerns.”

LNP Member for Cleveland and Oodgeroo candidate Mark Robinson said $20 million would be spent duplicating Cleveland-Redland Bay Rd at Thornlands.

“This announcement will be music to the ears of thousands of bayside motorists who experience significant delays and traffic congestion on this road daily,” Mr Robinson said.

“It’s why the LNP team has listened, planned and acted to commit to delivering this project to bust congestion now and into the future.

“By delivering this project, not only will we build the roads Queenslanders need but we will create local jobs.

“Instead of sitting around talking about it, the LNP has put its money where its mouth is and will actually deliver.”
