Upgrade Colleges Crossing, Mount Crosby Road, Chuwar

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Andrea Curr
4 Lewis Drive

Total Signatures - 908

Sponsoring Member: Sean Choat MP

Posting Date: 6/08/2013

Tabled Date: 6/08/2013

Responded By: Hon Scott Emerson MP on 5/09/2013

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 the need for the upgrade of Colleges Crossing situated on Mount Crosby Road, Chuwar.


Rising waters in the Brisbane River and frequent dam releases render the Crossing impassable resulting in major disruption to the provision of emergency services and general traffic between the Karalee and Karana Downs communities.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to implement a process for the planned upgrade of Colleges Crossing with a suitable structure that will remain open and accessible during flood mitigation from the Wivenhoe catchment.
