New railway station for Pimpama

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 19/09/2019

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 fast track the construction of a new railway station, adjacent to the existing road bridge, including the provision of a 500 park-n-ride, to provide a desperately needed additional option for commuters in the Pimpama 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. With congestion on the M1 above capacity at peak times, the taking of 500 cars off the M1, will assist in reducing congestion and commuters will spend less time stuck in traffic and more time with family.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to do all in its power to ensure the construction of a new railway station at Pimpama, as a matter of urgency.
