"I won't back down"

MP Stands His Ground over Inland Rail Project

Maranoa MP David Littleproud says he won’t back down from a decision to call for a review into his governments preferred route for the inland rail.

He is one of eight backbenchers calling for the review after the Senate Estimate Committee says the proper assessment process for the line hadn’t been conducted.

Some local Toowoomba business groups were hitting out at the move and are now calling on the government to “get on with it”.

However, Mr Littleproud says the project is a once in a lifetime opportunity and we don’t rush into a decision, we get it right the first time.
