QUEENSLANDERS who use the M1 between the Gold Coast and Brisbane every day are probably wondering why the Turnbull and Palaszczuk Governments are having an argument about whether the M1 falls within a metropolitan area.

FOR years there has been serious congestion at the intersection of Diagonal and Morphett Roads in Adelaide’s south-west.
