Jennifer Block
11 Soma Court

Total Signatures - 52

Sponsoring Member: Ros Bates MP

Posting Date: 4/03/2011

Closing Date: 4/09/2011

Tabled Date: 6/09/2011

Responded By: Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk MP on 3/10/2011

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

Electors of the Division of Mudgeeraba draws to the attention of the House congestion on local roads during peak school times at Clover Hill State School and Somerset College which affects traffic flows for residents in the Clover Hill Estate, local traffic on Somerset Drive, rat-running of cars through Glenwood Park and increased congestion on the Exit 82 interchange.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to implement a trial of public transport to alleviate thousands of motorists and residents affected daily through the introduction of a "kiss and ride" at Firth Park where parents of children attending Clover Hill are able to drop their children off, who are then supervised onto buses at 8:15 am and 8:30 am by lollipop volunteers, bussed to the school and supervised off the bus, with the reverse occurring in the afternoon.
