Poor state of Gladstone to Monto Road

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Mark McLachlan
685 Monomeath Road
BOYNE VALLEY QLD 4680

Total Signatures - 78

Sponsoring Member: Mr Colin Boyce MP

Posting Date: 11/06/2019

Tabled Date: 11/06/2019

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 11/07/2019

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

The petition of residents of Queensland draws to the attention of the House to the poor and dangerous state of the Gladstone to Monto Road, in particular the gravel section between Many Peaks and Kalpower, the section between Nagoorin and Ubobo and other sections of the road towards Monto. These sections are dangerous, particularly with the advent of heavy haulage operating 24/7 carrying timber and ilminite. The section between Kalpower and Many Peaks is so bad that the school bus operator has cancelled the school bus service as they believe they are unable to deliver children safely to school.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to take whatever action is required to ensure the repair to the gravel section to a safe state, and put plans in place to bitumen both these sections of Gladstone to Monto Road to provide a safe two lane road, and other such works as needed on the road towards Monto to ensure the safety of the traveling public.
