Indooroopilly MP Scott Emerson said pressure from him working with the local community has seen the Palaszczuk Labor Government commit to the upgrade of the Graceville train station upgrade and a cycle bridge across Moggill Road at Indooroopilly in the State Budget.

Mr Emerson said the projects were fully costed and funded by the previous LNP Government but were at risk of being scrapped by Labor through budget black hole cuts.

“Sadly there is little new funding in the budget for the Indooroopilly electorate while motorists and public transport users will be hit by increases in car registration and train, bus and ferry fares," he said.

"Under the LNP family car registration was frozen and fares were cut for the first time statewide in Queensland history.

"It is clear that Labor did not have a plan to deliver for Queensland including Indooroopilly except to increase the cost-of-living."

Mr Emerson said the Graceville station upgrade would increase access for the disabled and those with mobility issues while the cycle bridge would improve safety at the intersection of Moggill Road and the Centenary Motorway.

"When I was Transport and Main Roads Minister I started the roll-out of flashing lights at school zones and I'm pleased the State Government has adopted that policy," he said.

"I'll be fighting for even more schools in the Indooroopilly electorate to get those flashing lights."
