Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House concerns regarding the lack of adequate road signage for both wildlife and motorist safety, along the state-controlled road, Mt Crosby Road. 

Whilst acknowledging the limited animal-warning and advisory signage that is currently along and in the vicinity of Mt Crosby Road, this is insufficient for the protection of local wildlife, particularly in view of the increase in residential growth and associated utilisation of Mt Crosby Road. 

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House that the Minister for Transport and Main Roads, being the Minister responsible for the Department of Transport and Main Roads, review the current animal advisory and motorist safety signage that is in place along Mt Crosby Road, and install additional signage at key intersections and crossings to ensure the greater protection of local wildlife, and enhance the safety of all road users.
