Powell Media Release – #Powell4GlassHouse – Fighting for parking at Caboolture Hospital (11 June 2015)

The Palaszczuk-Gordon Government are failing to even get the simple tasks done with Ministers response times blowing out to 11 weeks.

Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP, wrote to the Minister for Health on 27 March asking for answers on their plans for car parking at the Caboolture Hospital – and is still waiting on a reply.

“It’s unacceptable that constituents are having to wait this long to get a simple yes or no answer to whether the Palaszczuk-Gordon Government intends to keep the LNP promise to deliver more car parking at the Caboolture Hospital.

“For years, the people of Glass House, Pumicestone and Morayfield in particular have been crying out for additional car parking at this extremely busy hospital.  The region is continuing to grow steadily and extra car parking is vital to ensuring the Hospital continues to offer the very best care to its patients and visitors.

The LNP promised to deliver 100 additional car parks at the Caboolture Hospital if re-elected. That promise was backed up by finding in the budget – not reliant on Strong Choices or any outside funding source. 

“I am calling on the Minister to reply to my correspondence and tell the community whether they intend to allocate these much needed funds, as budgeted, and deliver the extra car parks for Caboolture Hospital,” Mr Powell concluded.
