TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland
The petition of citizens of Malanda, Milla Milla, Ravenshoe and Innisfail draws to the attention of the House the notorious intersection of East Evelyn Road and Milla Milla-Malanda Road, via Milla Milla where numerous motorists have lost their lives.Your petitioners therefore request the House to seriously address the upgrade and implementation for a safe working and effective intersection and road that should include the introduction of: 1. Lighting at the intersection. 2. Emergency safety ramp for vehicles travelling from East Evelyn Road. 3. Introduce urgent slip lanes for separate vehicle exit and entry. 4. Increased warning signage before the intersection. 5. Upgrade and widen the existing roadway. 6. Introduce Road barriers and reflectors. 7. Implement a reduction in the speed limit. 8. Improve present visibility in all lanes.
