Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 27/11/2015

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that residents of Jamboree Heights are experiencing peak hour difficulty in motorised access to the Centenary Motorway and Darra Rail Station via the single lane each way Sumner Road flyover of the Centenary Motorway. These delays are also being endured by motoring residents of neighbouring suburbs, Sumner Park, Middle Park, Riverhills, Westlake and the businesses workers and their clients of Sumner Industrial Park.  The congestion at this flyover and along the 2 x 2 laned section of the Centenary Motorway from Moggill to Sumner Roads is worsening and for extending durations. This can be attributed to the expansion of new industrial estates in Darra including the Westlink Green project, the expansion of the Mt Ommaney shopping complex and the development of Satellite housing estates in Springfield and Ripley. More through traffic along the Centenary Motorway in both directions can be expected with the soon to be opened Legacy Way. Residents adjacent of the Motorway are also being subjected to increasing motorway noise due to the aged or missing timber noise barriers.


Your petitioners therefore request the House to immediately plan or activate existing plans and recommence public consultation with stakeholders with the goal of prioritising funding for a sustainable vehicular, public transport and cyclist solution that addresses both traffic congestion and noise abatement implementation.
