Stage 2 of Yeppen bridge project officially opened Friday
CAPRICORNIA MP Michelle Landry will welcome Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss (pictured) for the 10am official opening of the $170million stage two Yeppen South project tomorrow.
The project on the outskirts of Rockhampton's main gateway has come in $127m less than originally forecast.
Funding for stage two Yeppen South was one of Ms Landry's 2013 Coalition election promises when then Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey signed-off on the funding pledge.
The Federal Coalition paid $136m and the Queensland Government $34m towards this $170m project.
The bridge is designed to allow freight and traffic to continue to flow into Rockhampton during floods, boosting both the local and state economy.
