Six Month Action Plan for Queensland Launched

16/07/2012

Local MPs have welcomed the launch of the Newman Government's Six Month Action Plan for Queensland - the next phase of getting the State back on track.

Premier Campbell Newman released details of the plan during a speech at the LNP State Convention in Brisbane last weekend.

Mr Seath Holswich, State Member for Pine Rivers, said the plan and its action items set out clear delivery targets.

"It is vital that the Government and its MPs continue to share our plans with Queenslanders and set out clear delivery targets," Mr Holswich said.

Mr Trevor Ruthenberg, State Member for Kallangur, added: "We're committed to delivering on our promises, improving this state and remaining accountable."

"There is a lot to do, and for the next six months, this comprehensive action plan will be both a map and a report card."

The Six Month Action Plan, from July to December 2012, clearly sets out actions which are divided under the five pledges the LNP Government promised at the March Election.

Some of the 149 actions in the Six Month Action Plan include:

• Amalgamating South East Queensland bulk water entities to reduce the cost of water
• Deliver the 2012 roll out of flashing lights at school zones
• Investigate acquisition of habitat for the preservation of koalas, commence a four year koala research grant program and invite applications for koala rescue and rehabilitation services
• Provide all special schools with 20 eTablets
• Establish arrangements with private hospitals to cut elective surgery waiting lists for ‘long wait' patients

Mr Holswich said he would continue working hard for the people of Pine Rivers.

"I'm proud to be part of a Government that continues to act on its commitments and gets things done for Pine Rivers families," he said.

Mr Ruthenberg encouraged residents to log on to www.qld.gov.au and download a copy of the plan to keep track of the Government's achievements.
