Call for freeze on rego costs

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

THE state’s peak car body wants car reg­is­tra­tion costs frozen for an­other three years and stronger in­vest­ment in roads.

RACQ has called on the State Gov­ern­ment to com­mit to keep­ing reg­is­tra­tion rises stag­nant for three years, which would keep them un­changed from 2011 prices.

RACQ Ex­ec­u­tive Gen­eral Manager Ad­vo­cacy Paul Turner said they had sent their Bud­get sub­mis­sion to the Gov­ern­ment, ad­vo­cat­ing strongly for con­tin­ued in­vest­ment in pri­or­ity ar­eas.

“Queens­land needs strong in­vest­ment in trans­port in­fra­struc­ture to im­prove safety, re­duce con­ges­tion and bring eco­nomic benefits for our State through job cre­ation,” he said.
