2019 Federal Election candidate scorecard and commitments list

2019 Federal Election candidate scorecard and funding commitments

Our campaign priorities

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 from candidates in Rankin, Forde and Wright.

While some funding was received towards the Mt Lindesay Highway, more will be needed to deliver a comprehensive solution.

As both vital projects for Logan, Council will continue to advocate for funding for these priorities to both the Federal and State governments.
