Despite some excited pre-budget gossip Brisbane’s inner city subway line is not a sure thing – yet. The Fed government last night dropped $20m into State hands to continue studies on burrowing below the city.
Premier Bligh announced the bold plan late last year and it was hoped the Feds 2009 Budget might kick in more than $2b to get things underway. The project could cost $14b plus, and be completed around 2012-2013. Proposed subway stations include the CBD, West End, Spring Hill and the Gabba.
