TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

The petition of electors of the Division of Redlands draws to the attention of the House to the recent resurfacing of Cleveland-Redland Bay Road at Victoria Point between Benfer Road and Anita Street that was surfaced with a 2 coat course chip seal surface that has made the tyre/surface approx. 8 decibels louder than the old smooth surface and therefore is affecting the residents and children's lifestyle with some of the following: sleep disruptions, annoyance and hypertension caused by the sudden increase in road noise.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to have the Department of Main Roads gives consideration to applying a low noise asphalt overlay to the portion of road mentioned above and reduce the excessive noise levels currently being experienced since the recent road surface upgrade.
