Rename Anzac Avenue to Anzac Memorial Avenue

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

David Dwyer
21 Inverpine Court

Total Signatures - 26

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 23/04/2013

Closing Date: 23/10/2013

Tabled Date: 31/10/2013

Responded By: Hon Scott Emerson MP on 2/12/2013

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 1925 was when Anzac Memorial Avenue, which runs from Petrie to Redcliffe, was first dedicated.  Over time the word "Memorial" was dropped from the road name.  We the undersigned as a mark of respect would like the word "Memorial" reinstated in the street name.  This is a mark of respect for those who served, lost their lives or were injured during the battle of Gallipoli at Anzac Cove, Turkey.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to consider renaming Anzac Avenue to Anzac Memorial Avenue.
