Another spat over the proposed Brisbane Metro transport project has broken out between the Queensland government and Brisbane City Council.
New Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner used the final day of the LNP state conference to blast the Palaszczuk government for demanding a planned station at the South Brisbane cultural centre to be moved.
He said Council is funding the $944 million Metro construction cost, and just wants the government to let them get on with it.
"But not only are they not funding the metro project, they're even refusing to release the $10 million given to them by the Morrison government to be passed on to the metro project.
"That's $10 million that the state government is deliberately sitting on."
LNP leader Deb Frecklington called Transport Minister Mark Bailey "incompetent", and the process too involved.
"The Lord Mayor just spoke about nearly 300 meetings, I mean enough is enough, get onboard, support the Metro," she said.
"This is a vital congestion-busting project for inner-city Brisbane."
But Minister Bailey said Council had a bad track record.
"They stuffed up King George Square, they stuffed up Kingsford Smith Drive, we're not going to let them stuff up this project," he said.
Mr Bailey said Council had been aware of the issue for more than a year but hadn't resolved it.
"It's not the state government that went out to tender without any approvals, it's the Lord Mayor," he said.
"If they spent more time dealing with the problems with Metro rather than millions of dollars of advertising in people's letter boxes, we'd all be in a better place."
