THERE will be no money for the construction of the Yeppen floodplain upgrade according to the LNP Capricornia candidate Michelle Landry.

At a meeting of the Senate Estimates Committee on Monday, Labor said there would be no funding for the Yeppen South upgrade and only the $5 million had been allocated for the planning and design – to get it “shovel ready”.

And when Senator Barnaby Joyce, who was at the meeting, asked: “Is there any money for the construction of the Yeppen floodplain in the forward estimates?”

“No there isn’t Senator,” the Department of Infrastructure and Transport’s Mr Roland Pittar said.

    “We know that six mines were approved to release more than 712 million litres into the Fitzroy catchment on 25 and 26 January,” Save the Reef spokeswoman Dr Libby Connors said.

    “Another 35 mines were permitted to release water without giving their volumes.

    “If they release at a similar rate it will be adding 4800 megalitres of additional water, that’s almost five billion litres into the already flooded Fitzroy River system.”

Do not think Obeid mob has say here, unless they are in Qld Mining… just too much to check.
