The petition of citizens of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the number of accidents and fatalities on the Bruce Highway between Rockhampton and Mackay.

 

Your petitioners therefore request the House to undertake a detailed safety audit and analysis of the Bruce Highway between Rockhampton and Mackay with particular emphasis on but not limited to the provision of overtaking lanes and rest stops; and the depth of table drains, the quality and condition of road shoulders and obstacles close to the road from the perspective of providing an adequate and safe buffer area for motorists to leave the road in an emergency situation.
