Both of these projects would also bring an influx of a much needed commodity to many struggling regions – jobs. We all hear the constant rhetoric of politicians of all persuasions that jobs are the highest priority for their party and leaders.

South-East Queensland commuters are suffering because successive governments cannot agree on who funds Cross River Rail. It's time to see our political leaders step up, show some intestinal fortitude and say "enough – we're going to build this, with or without other levels of government."

It's time for the visionaries to stand up and lead.
