Installation of high crash site warning sign

Wed 14 Jun 2017

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is about to commence installation of a high crash site warning sign near the intersection of South Pine Road and Pullen Road, Everton Park.

These works are scheduled to commence early June 2017 and be completed in late June 2017.

  • Monday to Friday, 6pm to 4am.

Possible impacts:

  • Local residents may experience additional light and noise, from construction equipment and activities.
  • Traffic management including traffic control and partial lane closures will be in place where required.
  • While some minor delays may be experienced during construction, this will generally occur outside peak times and at night to minimise impacts to busway users.

TMR has strategies in place to mitigate and manage impacts and apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause to residents and motorists.

No funding to fix intersection of Stafford Road and South Pine Road

Wed 14 Jun 2017

Desperately needed funding to fix traffic congestion at the intersection of South Pine and Stafford Roads at Everton Park was missing from this week's State Budget.

The State Member for Everton, Tim Mander, said that he was extremely disappointed there was no end in sight to the long and frustrating wait to get through this intersection each day for tens of thousands of commuters.

"Not only are people wasting precious hours of their week sitting in their cars here, but the intersection at South Pine and Stafford Roads is also dangerous."

"I have been expecting the results of skid resistance testing on the right turn movement from Stafford Road into South Pine Road after several minor car accidents on the intersection in the last 12 months. The State Government still has not provided the results of the testing," said Mr Mander.

Mr Mander said he was pleased the government re-announced some operational funding for the Youngcare facility at Albany Creek that was originally committed by the last LNP government in 2014.

Support Walk for Youngcare and MS Queensland Albany Creek Apartments

Thu 30 Mar 2017

 

Youngcare at Albany Creek is on track to be the new home for eight young people with high needs in 2017 to promote lives of choice, independence and dignity!

The centre is holding an Open Day on 16 May 2017 commencing at 7am. To celebrate the opening of this facility, highlight the challenges for disabled young people and raise funds to purchase a motor vehicle for the residents, I am leading a group of walkers around the district on 16 May 2017 commencing at 8:30am from the Youngcare facility at Albany Creek. I will walk around the district, between three primary schools where the children will help me raise money to support this facility.

Please help support this fantastic facility which will make an invaluable difference to these young people's lives by donating here and liking/sharing this event on Facebook.

Every local business or individual who donates $200 or more can participate in the walk and will receive a framed certificate acknowledging their contribution, advertisement in Buzz Magazine and acknowledgement on the event's Facebook page.
