 FEDERAL LABOR WILL FUND SOUTH ROCKHAMPTON LEVEE

A Shorten Labor Government would invest $25 million to build the South Rockhampton Flood Levee to better protect homes and businesses from devastating flood waters.

Queensland Labor has already committed $25 million and the Rockhampton Regional Council has committed $10 million to this vital piece of infrastructure.

Bill Shorten was in Rockhampton just last month and listened to the local community about the need for a levee following recent flooding.

That’s why a Shorten Labor Government will provide the money to make sure this levee gets built.

Instead of banging down Malcolm Turnbull’s door to get this levee built, LNP Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry has said that she still needs to be convinced that it’s necessary.

The up to 3,000 home and business-owners that were inundated with floodwater in April don’t need be convinced. They know that these floods hurt local jobs.

Building this levee is a no-brainer. The only people who don’t understand that are Malcolm Turnbull and Michelle Landry.
