Road safety improvements for Upfield Street and Mount Cotton Road

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Julian Vedelago
39 Upfield Street

Total Signatures - 358

Sponsoring Member: Ian Walker MP

Posting Date: 5/05/2015

Tabled Date: 5/05/2015

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 4/06/2015

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

The petition of residents of Queensland draws to the attention of the House to road hazards at two Upfield Street/Mount Cotton Road intersections. In Upfield Street there are a number of families (with young children) and a small business (retail outlet), along with the Czechoslavakian Club which boasts hundreds of members. It is very dangerous turning right (outbound) into Upfield Street, as there is very little overtaking room for through traffic. Mount Cotton Road has become increasingly busy over the recent years as it is a major thoroughfare servicing the Redlands-Brisbane commute for both residents and businesses alike. Many accidents, and 'close calls' take place very year irrespective of TMR's records.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to undertake measures in improving the safety for outbound vehicles turning right into Upfield Street and through on Mount Cotton Road. Alike to the measures undertaken in Moxon, Daymar and Oakridge Streets, in which Upfield Street boasts a higher traffic rate because of the residents, retail business and clubs situated there.
