But Mr McCormack told Neil Breen Queensland’s Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey was happy with the promised $1.6 billion for roads and rail.
“Mark Bailey certainly sent me a text last night and was very pleased for the heads-up for the infrastructure rollout that we’re doing,” he said.
