State Budget 2023-24: Funding for Youngs Crossing Bridge

By Tanayah Wakefield

The State Government will spend $925.3 million on infrastructure across the Moreton Bay Region in the next 12 months – including $15 million for the long-awaited Youngs Crossing Rd bridge.

The funding was announced as part of the 2023-24 State Budget, which Treasurer Cameron Dick says has a focus on tackling the cost of living.

“The 2023-24 Queensland Budget is delivering record concessions funding for Queensland families and businesses in 2023-24, an estimated increase of more than 21 percent,”Mr Dick says.

“This unparalleled cost of living relief demonstrates this Government understands the cost of living pressures faced by all Queenslanders.”

Other measures aimed at helping ease financial pressure include the introduction of 15 hours of free kindergarten a week, a new Queenslander Savers website where people can see rebates and savings available and a blanket $550 cost-of-living rebate on electricity bills.

Vulnerable households will be supported with a $700 rebate, plus $372 under the Queensland Electricity Rebate Scheme.

Small businesses will also be able to access rebates for electricity, with those eligible receiving $650.
