Rookwood is bigger than politics: Capricorn Enterprise

"This is the great result when all levels of government (Federal, State and Local), business and industry work together for the good of our region," Ms Carroll said.

Ms Carroll praised the work of Capricornia MP Michelle Landry, Flynn MP Ken O'Dowd and Senator Matt Canavan in securing the funding.

"It is also heartening to have Federal Labor Candidate Leisa Neaton strongly supporting the project," she said.

"This project is just too important for politics to get in the way of jobs and growth for Central Queensland."
