Tabled Date: 15/05/2018

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 14/06/2018

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

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House the urgent need to upgrade the poorly lit and inadequate safety guards at the level rail crossings, that are located in the Rockhampton CBD, along Denison Street and the following cross streets - Cambridge, Archer, Fitzroy, Denham, William, Derby and Stanley. The above named rail crossings do not have boom gates or flashing lights and are not well illuminated at night. This has been an ongoing serious concern for the greater Rockhampton community and a dangerous and hazardous situation for travellers.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to take as a matter of urgency all action necessary to ensure the safety guards are upgraded to include the installation of boom gates, flashing lights and better lighting at the above named level rail crossing intersections.
