New Carpark for Mango Hill Train Station

THE Federal Government has locked in $4 million for new car parking at the Mango Hill train station.

Federal Member for Petrie, Luke Howarth MP said because of our growing economy, we are able to deliver the services and infrastructure our community desperately needs.”

The federal funding is part of the $244.25 million investment in South East Queensland through the Urban Congestion Fund.

Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population Alan Tudge said estimates put the cost of congestion in Australia’s capital cities at $25 billion per year, projected to reach $40 billion by 2030.

“The Urban Congestion Fund is helping to deliver a more reliable road network for commuters and freight, and support critical access to employment centres and freight hubs,” he said.

“This is as much about hitting those local traffic headaches as it is about the major highways.”
