Sunshine Coast Airport expansion project receives Federal Government loan
The Federal Government today announced it will provide the Sunshine Coast Council with a $181 million loan to assist with the expansion of the Sunshine Coast Airport.
Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson said while loan documents were yet to be finalised, council welcomed the news the loan had been offered.
“The Sunshine Coast Airport expansion is one of the region’s game-changer projects identified in the Regional Economic Development Strategy 2013-2033 and now with the major project approvals in place and access to this loan confirmed, council is able to go ahead with the construction of the new runway, apron expansion and related infrastructure,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“Council first made its request to the Federal Government for a concessional loan more than two years ago and I am pleased we finally have an outcome.
