Vital upgrade to Bundaberg intersection of FE Walker Street (Bundaberg-Port Road) and Ashfield Road

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 14/03/2019

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

The petition of Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the critical need to upgrade to the FE Walker Street and Ashfield Road intersection with traffic lights. Many Bundaberg residents using the road to access Bundaberg Christian College experience danger crossing the intersection due to poor visibility and fast-moving traffic. This project has been at the centre of the Bundaberg community's concern following the tragic death of a Bundaberg Christian College student who was killed attempting to avoid the road in 2014.

The upgrade would not only improve the safety for local motorists but would provide local jobs, ease congestion and make it easier to get products to and from the Bundaberg port as well.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to implement the recommended signalising of the intersection as per the government's completed business case within this term of government.
