Majority funding for the West Petrie Bypass

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

Jane Ward
89 Cotton Tree

Total Signatures - 122

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 10/09/2013

Tabled Date: 10/09/2013

Responded By: Hon Scott Emerson MP on 11/10/2013

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

The petition of citizens of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the following: at the Moreton Bay Regional Council meeting held on July 30th 2013, Council voted to "lobby State and Federal governments to secure significant majority funding to construct OPTION G of the West Petrie Bypass".


As small business owners and stakeholders of North Pine Country Park/Old Petrie Town, the construction of this four lane major road as it is presently planned to pass through the park will;

  • have a serious impact on the amenity and natural setting of the park, the principal reason people flock here; and
  • destroy the viability of our small business during and after construction.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to reject any request by Moreton Bay Regional Council for "significant majority funding" for this project.
