South Pine/Eatons Crossing Roads Intersection

Thu 3 Nov 2016

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.

Tackling our ice scourge

Tue 12 Jul 2016

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.

New study to improve traffic flow at Everton Park

Wed 22 Jun 2016

The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is undertaking a traffic modelling study aimed at improving traffic flow through the intersection of Stafford and South Pine Roads at Everton Park.

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.
