McEwen Highway

(Question No. 662)


Mr Katter asked the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, in writing, on 13 October 2011:

Does the Government have plans to upgrade the McEwen Highway to include making it multi-lane; if so, by what date.


Mr Albanese: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The McEwen Highway, which forms a section of the Gregory Developmental Road, is part of the state road network and is therefore the responsibility of the Queensland Government.

I understand the Queensland Government has a widening program in place for the highway and additional reconstruction works are to be carried out on flood damaged sections through the National Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements.
