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

The petition of residents of the State of Queensland draws to the attention of the House the urgent need to upgrade the bus services between Ormeau Station and Coomera Station which includes services throughout the Pimpama area. This area has been identified, in the recently released Shaping South East Queensland, Draft South East Queensland Regional Plan, October 2016, as "the area that will accommodate the largest proportion of the sub-region's planned greenfield growth", growth that is already occurring. An extension of hours and more frequent bus services are therefore essential for the provision of services to the residents of this fast growing area. In particular, a bus service is required to travel down Dixon Drive, Pimpama and back on to Yawalpah Road, via Cunningham Drive, Pimpama. Furthermore, the Ormeau-Pimpama-Coomera area is already a well located and planned urban settlement and, as such, must be serviced by the appropriate public transport infrastructure.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to do all in its power to ensure the essential upgrade to bus services between Ormeau Railway Station and Coomera Railway Station, as a matter of urgency.
