Merge lane - King Street meets the D'Aguilar Highway

Eligibility - Queensland residents

Principal Petitioner:

Barry Wilson
47-49 Kauri Court

Total Signatures - 163

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 12/03/2020

Closing Date: 31/03/2020

Tabled Date: 22/04/2020

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 22/05/2020

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the house the unsafe intersection at Moodlu where King Street meets the D'Aguilar Highway. Both being State controlled roads whereas the highway is signed posted at 100 kph and King Street at 60 kph with a give way sign at the intersection. The intersection is on a curve in the highway which severely restricts vision of oncoming traffic of which many are heavy laden quarry trucks including loaded trailers travelling at or near 100 kph.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to take immediate action to install a merge lane from King Street to allow vehicles to gain the adequate speed to merge with traffic travelling at 100 kph safely. Funding could be redirected from the widening of the D'Aguilar Highway between just past this intersection to Wamuran which we feel has far more lower priority.
