Mt Morgan Unemployment Not Good Enough For MP

Stephen Andrew

Stephen Andrew MP Member for Mirani The Queensland Government has carried out studies to assess whether the risks can be engineered and managed at an acceptable level, however further research is needed for a clear determination. While he understands the safety risks involved, Mr Andrew calls on the Government to fast-track these feasibility reports in hopes that a solution can be engineered sooner. “I ask for a clear determination and official explanation of what needs to be done in bringing these projects to fruition and what action, analytical plans and economic/social modelling can be put in place by State and Local Governments for the regions, by asking what is the Queensland Government’s capacity to illuminate developments for the regions and to properly access essential growth prospects through the implementation of long term productivity, particularly within my electorate” Mr Andrew said. If both projects were to come to fruition, Mount Morgan and surrounding areas would almost certainly see a drop in unemployment rates and an increase in tourism, which would give locals a much needed reprieve. Mr Andrew also echoes the opinion of locals who are calling for a new railway track to be built after the existing track that was damaged during floods in 2011. The tracks were previously used to offer train tours of the area. “Anything that will boost the local economy and improve the livelihood of the residents of Mount Morgan at the same time is certainly something worth looking into.” Mr Andrew has also penned a letter to the relevant Ministers voicing his frustration – please see the following page.

Dear Minister/s Stephen Andrew MP Member for Mirani Thursday 12 th April As the State Member for Mirani I am writing on behalf of my constituency and the community of Mount Morgan as there is a dominant view within the community that they feel forgotten about and rightly so. As the Ministers would be aware Mount Morgan is a historical township that once contributed to the great wealth of Queensland though the region has faced for some time unemployment and the loss of economic outputs in the region, a region that has huge potential for economic growth should potential projects in the Mount Morgan area go ahead. Projects that will bring employment prospects, rehabilitate the Mount Morgan mine and open up new avenues for tourism by showcasing the Historical region. These projects such as Mount Morgan Mine, Dairy Creek Steam train and Locomotive Tours, Fire Clay Caves Reopening will raise the social and economic profile of Mount Morgan and the surrounding areas. It appears to be a stifling of productivity and growth prospects as Government Representatives we should be aiming at strengthening regional communities and in particular Mount Morgan, which again historically contributed to our states wealth. I ask for a clear and concise determination and or an official explanation of what needs to be done in bringing these projects to fruition and what action and analytical plans and or economic and social modelling can be put in place by State and Local Governments for the regions, by asking what is the Queensland Governments capacity to illuminate developments for the regions and to properly access the essential and potential growth prospects through the implementation of long term productivity again and in particular the regional communities of my electorate. If the Minister can offer any feedback in regards to progressing developments for the regional area of Mount Morgan that would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely MP Stephen Andrew – Member for Mirani The Sarina Centre Phone:074806 0700 Central Street Sarina Qld 4737 Fax:074806 0709 PO Box 56 Sarina Qld 4737 Toll Free: 1800 812 340 Mirani@parliament.qld.gov.au
