I WANT to keep representing the people of Wright to keep getting the best deal possible for this great region.

I firmly believe Wright will benefit most under a re-elected Coalition Government. Already we have seen some of the great things which can be achieved locally under the current leadership.

Construction is already under way on the Beaudesert-Bromelton intermodal rail hub, which will create 1000 jobs into the future. The Commonwealth contributed $9.6 million dollars towards this $30 million project through my advocacy.

I've delivered 10 million dollars for upgrades to the Cunningham Highway at Warrill View and the Coalition has also committed $10 million to get the ball rolling on the Mt Lindesay Highway safety upgrade.

Construction is happening right now on the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing, which the Commonwealth has committed $1.1 billion towards. This massive project will support about 1800 jobs and bring about $2.4 billion over 30 years for business and industry in the greater Toowoomba region, flowing into the Lockyer Valley.

The NBN is up and running, with 8000 homes and businesses ready for service in Wright. Of those, 4000 premises have already opted to be connected. By 2018, 40,000 premises will be ready for connection or under construction in the electorate.

Our economic plan for jobs and growth is strong. I'm asking for your support so I, as part of a re-elected Turnbull Coalition Government, can continue to build on these vital infrastructure roll-outs and keep representing the people of this great region.
