Total Signatures - 196

Sponsoring Member: Jackie Trad MP

Closing Date: 10/02/2014

Tabled Date: 11/02/2014

Responded By: Hon Scott Emerson MP on 13/03/2014

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the lack of universal access to the Graceville, Chelmer and Sherwood railway stations even though 1. the last two censuses reveal a 10% increase in the number of children in prams being taken to railway platforms; 2. many people with bags use the railway to travel to the airport; 3. we are a community with an increasingly elderly population who would still like to use the railway.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to provide funds to upgrade the Graceville, Chelmer and Sherwood railway stations to give universal access.
