Rookwood is bigger than politics: Capricorn Enterprise
CAPRICORN Enterprise CEO Mary Carroll has backed the announcement from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull that an LNP government would contribute $130 million to Rookwood Weir.
The project was identified by Capricorn Enterprise as one of the priority projects for the region over the next four years.
"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."
