Coalition vows to boost roads infrastructure in Gladstone

NATIONAL Party Leader Warren Truss has assured Gladstone businesses they will be looked after under a Coalition government.

While visiting MIPEC headquarters, home to many of Gladstone's tug boats, Mr Truss and Flynn LNP candidate Ken O'Dowd on Thursday reaffirmed the party's pledge to repair infrastructure in Gladstone.

The first port of call was to improve Gladstone's road network, including Port Access Rd and the Bruce Hwy.

Mr Truss also attacked Labor for relying on mining tax revenue to fund projects.

"Gladstone is a classic example of why there should be a change of government on Saturday," Mr Truss said.

"There are more projects ready to go, but companies are reluctant to make the commitment because they can't rely on government policy."

Labor candidate for Flynn Chris Trevor said the Federal Government was not relying on mining tax revenue.

"The projects we have promised Gladstone are fully funded in the budget," Mr Trevor said.
