Seqwater has re-launched its Safey competition – a competition that encourages you to take a selfie while playing it safe.
Entry is simple. People just need to submit a photo of themselves engaging in safe behaviour while at, on the way to, or preparing to visit the great outdoors, along with a short explanation of why it’s safe.
To meet the conditions of their development approval for the Allura Units, Niclin Group are undertaking roadworks on Old Northern Road near Rogers Parade.
Roadworks will be carried out from Monday 12 December 16 until Friday 20 January 17 and will include microtunneling under Old Northern Road and widening of the footpath.
Work will generally occur during daylight hours on Monday to Friday and involve no disruptions to traffic. Motorists may experience minor delays during night works which will occur three times during this time.
Traffic signals at this intersection were recently upgraded to include Emergency Vehicle Priority technology.
This enables emergency vehicles to automatically trigger traffic light sequences to change along the most direct route when responding to an emergency call.
This means a green traffic light signal is given to emergency vehicles, when safe to do so, in the direction of that emergency response call.
By clearing the path ahead emergency vehicles can respond quicker to emergencies.
As the Shadow Minister for Emergency Services, I appreciate the dedication of the volunteers of the Rural Fire Brigade. It was great meeting up with their leadership on Yellow Ribbon Day.
The Youngcare site at Albany Creek is becoming a reality.

A comprehensive plan to tackle Queensland's ice epidemic and help make our community safer has been released by the LNP.
According to the Member for Everton and Shadow Police Minister, Tim Mander an LNP Government would implement a five-point action plan to take ice off our streets through crime prevention, drug addiction services and strong enforcement.
"The LNP already has a solid track record on this issue, through law and order initiatives such as policing, tougher penalities for offenders, and addiction treatment services that work.
"Our five-point plan will dovetail in with the Federal Government's National Ice Action Plan to make Queensland the safest place to live, work and raise a family.
The new TMR study comes following sustained lobbying from the Member for Everton,Tim Mander in response to the worsening traffic congestion.
“TMR recently installed a series of cameras to count the number of vehicles travelling through each day.
“Armed with this information, TMR engineers are now modelling options to change the traffic light signalling and realign lanes to understand what will really make an improvement to traffic flow,” he explained.
Earlier this year, TMR made signalling changes along South Pine Road, to the north of the intersection which the Department says has improved in-bound traffic flow during the week-day morning peak period.
“While I am pleased TMR is studying it again, the reality is the intersection is severely physically constrained and the opening of the Woolworths site last year made the problem even worse.
“It’s imperative the State Government fund a major upgrade as a matter of urgency,” said Mr Mander.
Completing go card transactions is now more convenient for local residents as Brook News joins the go card retail network.
Tim Mander, Member for Everton said a ticketing machine was installed into the retail store two weeks ago.
“This is great for the community as the stores will now be able to sell new go cards, top-up existing cards, or change card expiry dates in-store,” Mr Mander said.
“It is pleasing to see go card top-up facilities in the shopping centre after I identified the area as requiring better access to these services.
Store Proprietor Stephen Bird said with 16 schools in close proximity to Brookside Shopping Centre to his store, he was very pleased to finally have the machine.
“It makes it much quicker and easier to handle all customer enquiries about go cards,” he said.
Retail and/or top-up locations include 7-Eleven and selected independent retailers, QR station ticket offices and fare machines, and at busway station fare machines.
For further information on location of go card retailers visit translink.com.au or phone the TransLink Contact centre (24/7) on 13 12 30.
The contract for construction of the Old Northern Road Noise Barrier project has been awarded to Queensland Bridge and Civil, and work is underway.
This project will involve replacing identified barriers located between Jinker Track and the Bunyaville State Forest Park border on the western side of Old Northern Road and between The Boulevard to near DeVito Place on the eastern side with concrete panels. The existing timber barriers approximately 300 metres north of Hamilton Road intersection will be repaired. The height of the barriers for the majority of the project is two metres.
Works are scheduled to commence in late July 2015, and is scheduled for completion in 2016. Reduced speed limits, lane closure, signage and traffic control will be in place during works to safeguard motorist and roadworkers.
