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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House to the upgrade Mount Crosby and Warrego Highway interchange, for which all design work has been completed. This interchange has become the busiest interchange on the Warrego Highway. This is due to the increased development in the suburbs of Karalee, Chuwar, Barellan Point and Mt Crosby/Karana Downs and surrounding region as well as business park in the CitiSwitch development. It is clear that the interchange can no longer cope with the increased volume of traffic owing to the current design of single lane traffic and roundabouts. It has now become a major safety hazard for traffic exiting off the highway in both directions.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure that the Department of Transport and Main Roads expedite the proposed upgrade of the Mount Crosby Road - Warrego Highway interchange and that these roadworks include extending the exit and entry lanes to the Warrego Highway as well as managing traffic flow to and from the Brisbane and Ipswich corridors.
