TRANSPORT — KARRATHA–TOM PRICE ROAD

691. Hon JACQUI BOYDELL to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:

I refer to funding for the Karratha–Tom Price road.

(1) Will the minister table all her correspondence with the federal government on the matter?

(2) Will the minister table all her correspondence with the City of Karratha on the matter?

(3) Has the minister secured federal funding for this important road yet?

(4) If no to (3), why not?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) I table the attached document.

[See paper 1685.]

(2) The minister has not formally written to the City of Karratha regarding funding but has met with the council a number of times to discuss infrastructure items, including the Karratha–Tom Price road.

(3)–(4) Commonwealth funding support is yet to be secured, but we are hopeful that the federal government will support this project.
