PM Pledges $1 Billion To M1

The much-anticipated M1 upgrades between Tugun and Varsity Lakes could soon become a reality.

Urban Infrastructure Minister Paul Fletcher has confirmed the Federal Government has committed up to $1 billion to M1 upgrades.

The project would include widening the stretch between Varsity Lakes and Tugun to six lanes and the funding would also pay for upgrades at Eight Mile Plains.

However it's based on a 50/50 funding share with the Queensland Government, which Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is yet to agree to.
