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 bus services between Ormeau Station and Coomera Station which includes services throughout the Pimpama and Coomera area. The latest data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics shows that Pimpama on the northern Gold Coast has the biggest growth of any suburb in Queensland and is the fastest-growing outside a capital city anywhere in Australia. An extension of hours, more frequent bus services and additional bus routes are therefore essential for the provision of services to the residents of this fast growing area. 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.
