Action on Caloundra Road traffic congestion

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Ron Strong
9 Pumicestone Place

Total Signatures - 425

Sponsoring Member: Mark McArdle MP

Posting Date: 1/11/2016

Tabled Date: 1/11/2016

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 1/12/2016

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

Queensland citizens draw to the attention of the House the main road in and out of Caloundra, Caloundra Road, experiences more than 30,000 commuters every day. By 2031 certain sections of Caloundra Rd is tipped to buckle under pressure from between 1000-24,000 extra motorists daily. An extra 50,000 residents will call Caloundra home upon completion of the mega Caloundra South Development Aura.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to as part of the solution the Palaszczuk-Labor Government needs to:

1. Work with Stockland to fast-track the completion of the Bells Creek Arterial from Caloundra Rd to the Bruce Highway

2. Investigate installing traffic signals and exit slip-lanes at the Caloundra Rd/Nicklin Way roundabout.
