The Federal Government will invest $300 million in the Brisbane Metro following an announcement by the Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities Paul Fletcher.

“This project has been assessed as a High Priority project of national significance by the federal government’s independent advisor, Infrastructure Australia, in its 2018 Infrastructure Priority List,” Mr Fletcher said.

“This is a vital project that will cut travel times, reduce bus congestion in the CBD and improve services to the suburbs.

“In total the Turnbull Government committed $5.2 billion to new major projects in Queensland in last week’s budget, including $1 billion to ease congestion on the M1, $390 million to duplicate the North Coast Line between Beerburrum and Landsborough and $3.3 billion for additional upgrades along the Bruce Highway.”

Federal Member for Brisbane Trevor Evans said the Brisbane Metro would deliver a high-frequency metro network across 21 kilometres of existing busway linking the Eight Mile Plains, Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital and University of Queensland Lakes busway stations and all stations in between.
