MUNDOOLUN QLD 4285

Total Signatures - 155

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 28/06/2017

Closing Date: 9/10/2017

Tabled Date: 10/10/2017

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 10/01/2018

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the increasing congestion on the Mount Lindesay Highway resulting from rapid development along the highway's corridors, including Greater Flagstone (120,000 residents over 30 years), Yarrabillba (50,000 residents over 20 years), Undullah (18,000) residents over 30 years) and others ie. Cusack Lane Jimboomba, Cedar Grove, Cedar Vale, Jimboomba Woods, Scenic Rise, Avondale Waters and Oaklands, and with the added increase in trucks to and from the Bromelton Industrial Estate putting additional stress on the highway and its users. The highway services the electorates of Algester, Logan, Lockyer and Beaudesert - which results in these areas high levels of congestion, with inadequate passing lanes, inadequate turning lanes and frustration for commuters and lost productivity to the South-East Queensland economy. Of most concern is the increased impact this congestion is having on the large number of businesses located in the Mt Lindesay Highway corridor, negatively impacting their productivity and leading to loss of income.

 

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

  1. A business case on the highway including surrounding areas and infrastructure;
  2. A costing on the business case and inclusion of the Federal and Local Governments;
  3. The costing be put into future budgets of all levels of Government and to put in place a final solution for the businesses and communities affected by the Mt Lindesay Highway.
