Proposed Port Access Rd route 'in the wrong place': O'Dowd
STAGE two of the Port Access Rd has been delayed because the project's cost projections have blown out to $200 million, Federal MP Ken O'Dowd says.
The Labor government announced nearly $50 million for the project and that was honoured when the Coalition took office.
But, in a written statement, Mr O'Dowd said the project was "not shovel-ready" yet and once the report has been finalised the government will be ready to move on to the next stage.
His main concern is the proposed route "is in the wrong place" an issue which will be addressed by the latest study by Main Roads.
