COMMENTS from independent federal MP Rob Oakeshott that he has invested all his political capital into the upgrade of the Pacific Highway by 2016 is a no-brainer for all North Coast MP's both state and federal.

It is believed that next week's federal budget will have $3.5billion allocated to completing the upgrade of the Pacific Hwy by the proposed deadline.

Mr Oakeshott said that it is now up to the State Government to match that funding dollar for dollar and that state members between Newcastle and the Tweed should be lobbying for that to happen.

Local federal member Luke Hartsuyker said that such comments are easy to make as seeing the Pacific Hwy completed is something that constituents up and down the coast want to see.

He also said that the Highway should be a bipartisan issue.

"My position is that both levels of Government should work together and commit the absolute maximum amount of funding to ensure the upgrade is completed just as quickly as possible," Mr Hartsuyker said.
