Steel plant powers on with EIS

STATE development land in Yarwun has been opened up to allow ground testing for a $6 billion steel project.

Surveyors for the Euroa Steel Plant Project are required to undertake soil testing as part of the Environmental Impact Statement required through the State Government.

The previous Newman Government wanted a $5 million land deposit for surveyors to access the area, a move the owners thought was unusual at the time.

And so with not enough funds to go ahead and foreign investment still awaiting approval, the work on the Environmental Impact Statement had stalled last year.

Gladstone MP Glenn Butcher said the project was now powering ahead after he had spoken with the development minister's office.

"That hurdle has been knocked straight down," he said.

"We removed it and they were given the go-ahead with the EIS."
