Range cross­ing

The Chronicle - - NEWS | OPINION -

THE Sec­ond Range Cross­ing to be called the “Toowoomba By­pass”? That would hap­pen if Doug Young (TC, 8/11) had his way.

It’s not just a side-track or a de­tour or a “by­pass”. It’s a rolled-gold master­piece of much-awaited 21st cen­tury in­fra­struc­ture. It was so com­pre­hen­sive and dif­fi­cult to plan and fund that the pre­vi­ous Queens­land La­bor gov­ern­ment found it all too hard in its 11 years in of­fice.

It took Toowoomba North mem­ber Trevor Watts and his fed­eral Coali­tion col­leagues to get it started, and com­pleted next year and it’s called “The Sec­ond Range Cross­ing”. — NEIL MUNRO, Burke St, Toowoomba
