One Nation makes Qld power plant promise

One Nation says it will force the next Queensland government to build a new coal-fired power station in the state's north.

One Nation will demand the next Queensland government invest $1.5 billion in a new coal-fired power station in the north if the party wins the balance of power.

Federal leader Pauline Hanson says the money will come from scrapping the $5.4 billion Cross River Rail program in Brisbane.

She says the federal government will be pressured to also stump up $1.5 billlion for the power plant, which is likely to be built in Collinsville, southwest of Bowen.
