Question: Do you think it will be resolved by the May Budget, the Andrews Government will wrap this up?

Jamie Briggs: Well they could resolve it tomorrow by beginning the project. And that's what we want them to do.

Question: Well they're very steadfast in not doing that. So do you think there's another way for them to resolve this, other than building a road?

Jamie Briggs: No, we have got $1.5 billion for the first, and $1.5 for the second stage to build the project. That's what the Federal Government wants; we want the jobs, we want the productivity benefits, and we want it to be happening now.
