State Budget – Labor snubs Kilkivan Fire Station for third time

13th June 2019

Member for Nanango, Deb Frecklington, has asked how many times the Labor Government will announce funding for the Kilkivan Fire Station in their State Budget – with 2019/20 being the third year the project has been announced.

Ms Frecklington said it unacceptable the funding keeps getting re-announced, and Kilkivan still doesn’t have a new fire station.

“The Kilkivan Fire Station has been announced three years in a row. The Labor Government keeps treating the Kilkivan community like fools,” Ms Frecklington said.

“It’s very worrying though that no works have actually started on the Kilkivan Fire Station. Surely Labor has to come clean and explain what is going on.

“And when it comes to the road network in the western part of the Gympie region, there is no funding at all for State network roads in the western Gympie region.

“Roads like Kilkivan-Tansey Road, Running Creek Bridge near Woolooga, and the Burnett Highway have simply been forgotten,” Deb said.

“After five years in power, all Labor is delivering is higher taxes, more debt, less jobs and less infrastructure. They are borrowing more and building less,” Deb said.
