Bipartisan Support Needed for Federal Budget Commitments

While a number of significant roads projects were handed-down in the 2019-2020 Budget, the ALP has signalled a mini-budget will be released later in the year if they successfully gain office. To ensure this does not disadvantage our region, Advance Cairns is calling for bipartisan support on roads.
