Upgrade and widen the Return Creek Bridge, Mount Garnet

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Josephine Wall de Gallo
16 Lucy Street

Total Signatures - 1807

Sponsoring Member: Shane Knuth MP

Posting Date: 16/08/2016

Tabled Date: 16/08/2016

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 15/09/2016

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 that we the undersigned request that the Return Creek Bridge in Mount Garnet is widened to a two lane bridge as a priority for the safety for all who use this crossing. The bridge is too narrow for the traffic it services and the give way sign is regularly ignored by a large proportion of drivers.


Locals regularly report near misses between vehicles and prime movers due to the narrow single lane bridge forcing vehicles into very dangerous situations on a daily basis.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to upgrade this bridge as a matter of urgency to ensure the flow of the traffic and the safety of all drivers.
