Prime Minister Scott Morrison has made his first visit to Townsville.
On a warm spring day ScoMo announced millions of dollars for one of the city's most long-awaited projects.
The Port of Townsville Expansion is an exciting opportunity for Townsville and one that our Mayor Jenny Hill is 100% supporting.
"Townsville City Council welcomes the Prime Minister’s announcement that the Australian Government will invest $75 million towards the Townsville Port Expansion Project," says Jenny.
"The expansion project will deliver real jobs and increase the competitiveness of the Townsville Port. I welcome the bipartisan support for the Townsville Port Expansion, and that the Prime Minister has matched the funding commitment made earlier this year by Opposition Leader Bill Shorten."
