“Our plan is not talk, it’s real action to fix the Bruce Highway and for us to move quickly.  You can be assured that a Coalition government won’t play the blame game with the State Government – we will work with the LNP State Government to make this happen”, said Mr Brough.
“Local residents can be confident that we will honour our commitment because only the Coalition will bring the Federal Budget under control.  Labor’s record debt and deficits puts even their own inadequate commitment to the Bruce Highway at risk.
“Fixing the Bruce Highway is an integral part of the Coalition’s plan to build a strong, prosperous economy.”
