Fighting for an Upgrade

South Pine Rd and Stafford Rd Intersection

This bottleneck causes enormous delays during peak hours. 

At the last election, the LNP committed $100m to fund the upgrade of the Stafford/South Pine Rd intersection.  The current State Labor Government committed nothing!

The completion of this upgrade will save travel time and save lives.  It will also help local businesses by busting congestion and making access easier which will unlock their potential to create more jobs in the future.

I will continue to hold this current Labor Government to account and won't stop until this upgrade is delivered.

Fighting for Funding

The Nest

The Nest Community is a volunteer-led organisation with the focus of building resilience and connected communities.

Women from all over the community gather to exchange traditional skills such as; knitting, sewing and gardening which reduces social isolation and improves health and well-being.
 
​The Nest receives no Government support and I am fighting for funding to keep this vital service for women going.
 
​If you want to know more about The Nest, visit their website.

Albany Creek Road

Since 2015, I’ve written to the Minister requesting an urgent upgrade to the intersection of Albany Creek Rd, Ferguson Street and Wruck Crescent at Albany Creek.

Serious crashes have occurred at this intersection and residents have shared their concerns about the many near misses and safety concerns for both motorists and pedestrians.  

 

After years of putting pressure on this Government, this upgrade has been delivered.

Everton Park Link Rd

Finally, after many years of applying pressure on the State Labor Government, the Everton Park Link Road (Stage 1) is NOW OPEN.

This new link road will provide an alternative route between Stafford and South Pine Roads which will relieve congestion at the main intersection. 

Bike riders will also benefit from dedicated facilities including a direct link to the Kedron Brook Bikeway.

Whilst this is a positive 
development, more effective traffic relief will only be achieved if the State Labor Government funds stage 2 which is the direct upgrade of the notorious Stafford and South Pine Roads intersection.

Crash Black Spot

Residents had cars crashing through their front fences and were literally living in fear.

 

After urging the Minister for Traffic and Main Roads, Mark Bailey, for several years to fix this stretch of road, I finally got some results!

This upgrade is now complete

with works including a minor realignment of the road, improvements to road drainage, new road surfacing and installation of a new kerb.
