DUPED: Sunshine Coast Rail funds fail to deliver to Maroochydore

13th May 2024

Caloundra has been consigned to a car park after the Albanese Government cut the Sunshine Coast Heavy Passenger Rail through to Maroochydore.

Under Labor, the Sunshine Coast rail will not be delivered to Maroochydore before the 2032 Games, despite being a key promise to Queenslanders in the bid.

Maroochydore and Kawana will miss out and Caloundra will be consigned to a car park.

The LNP committed to the project years ago and remain the only ones who will deliver Sunshine Coast Heavy Passenger Rail to Maroochydore.

The LNP’s commitment will see the project delivered the full length to Maroochydore via Beerwah, Caloundra and Kawana.

The Sunshine Coast community has been waiting 30 years for heavy passenger rail to connect Beerwah to Caloundra to Kawana to Maroochydore.

Queenslanders know they can’t trust Labor to deliver the infrastructure we need.

Only the LNP has the Right Priorities for Queensland’s Future, including delivering Sunshine Coast rail all the way to Maroochydore.
