#FAIRSHARE4LOGAN

In the lead up to the 2019 Federal Election, the #FairShare4Logan campaign focused on securing funding commitments to fix the Mt Lindesay Highway and towards a business case for Salisbury to Beaudesert Passenger Rail.

While some funding commitments were received for the Mt Lindesay Highway, more will be needed to deliver a comprehensive solution. Below is a scorecard with each candidate’s commitments to Logan.

Both projects are vital for the city and Council will continue to advocate for funding for these priorities to both the Federal and State Government.
