Referred To Hon Mark Bailey MP on 21/02/2018

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the urgent need to upgrade the northbound off-ramp of Exit 49 of the M1, at Pimpama. In addition, a new southbound on ramp, off Yawalpah Road and east of the current on ramp is required, to allow the roundabout to become a four-way intersection. Dangerous ramping occurs every afternoon in peak periods and regularly in the morning at Exit 49. It is a serious safety issue that has the potential to cause serious accidents resulting in injury or death.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure the government undertakes, as a matter of utmost urgency, improvements to the operation of the dangerous interchange that is the northbound off-ramp Exit 49 of the M1 at Pimpama.
