Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Susannah Holmes

Total Signatures - 209

Sponsoring Member: Vicky Darling MP

Posting Date: 6/09/2011

Tabled Date: 6/09/2011

Responded By: Hon Craig Wallace MP on 6/10/2011

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

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House that the Department of Transport and Main Roads is planning an upgrade to the Deagon Deviation and offers two options.


Option A of the DTMR plans to upgrade the Deagon Deviation will have a greater impact on the Deagon Wetlands through the removal of vegetation.  This will impact on the fauna in the area, as well as bring air and noise pollution closer to existing residential properties in Sandgate.


Option B of the DTMR plans to upgrade the Deagon Deviation will have minor impacts on the Deagon Wetlands and will not affect the function of the Deagon Racecourse.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to support Option B of DTMR's plan for upgrade to the Deagon Deviation.
