LOCAL ISSUES

School Needs Barrier

Over the last two years, I have written to the Minister for Transport and Main Roads (TMR) about the notorious intersection on the corner of Old Northern Rd and Dargie St, Everton Park.

 

Everton Park State School P&C recently expressed their dire concerns about the safety of their school students, as there have been several incidents where cars have crashed into trees and the fence on the school boundary.

​I have requested as a matter of urgency for TMR to erect a protective barrier to replace the existing fence, which clearly cannot take the full impact of an out of control vehicle.

​I am still waiting to hear back from the Minister, so watch this space!

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.

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, construction has commenced this year.

Everton Park Link Rd

An upgrade of the Stafford/South Pine Rd intersection is long overdue, and I have been applying relentless pressure on the Government to act. 

At the last election, the Government finally matched my commitment of $26 million for Stage 1 of this upgrade. 

Finally some news!  

The Department of Traffic and Main Roads have advised that construction is expected to commence Mid 2020 and will be completed by 2021.

I'll continue to fight to make sure this happens!

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.
