MP's wish list for Gladstone includes double lane highway
MEMBER for Flynn Ken O'Dowd would like to see double lane highways to the outskirts of Gladstone city.
The federal politician welcomed six members of the Liberal National Party to Gladstone on Wednesday as the LNP ramped up its federal election campaign five months out.
"Not enough funding in my opinion has gone towards the town itself," Mr O'Dowd said.
"I'd like to see a double highway to Yarwun, Boyne Tannum and Calliope. That has got to come. You've just got to see the traffic in the mornings and afternoons."
Mr O'Dowd also discussed the effects of the carbon tax.
"Gladstone is the carbon capital of the world and we have industries here that are struggling," he said.
"A carbon tax for those companies and other companies is not helping the situation."
