Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the proposed Hope Island train station and again highlight the need for suitable car parking facilities. Residents are convinced that the proposed 172 car spaces will be completely inadequate and will force Queensland Rail patrons to overflow into neighbouring streets for parking.

Failure to allocate the necessary car spaces now will only force the department to allocate additional funds in the future at far higher expense to taxpayers.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to do all within its power to allocate additional car spaces now, so that the station has a minimum of 500 spaces available. This decision is financially prudent and will encourage further use of public transport at this location
