Principal Petitioner:

Belinda Ward

Total Signatures - 619

Sponsoring Member: The Clerk of the Parliament

Posting Date: 27/04/2020

Closing Date: 3/05/2020

Tabled Date: 19/05/2020

Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 18/06/2020

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

Queensland residents draw to the attention of the House the design of the new intersection of Gladstone Rd and TJ Doyle Memorial Drive at Dutton Park, to facilitate access to the Queensland Government's new Inner City South State Secondary College, is unsafe and unsuitable for people walking, cycling and seeking to access public transport. Work is currently underway by Brisbane City Council according to a plan which does not support the Queensland Walking Strategy, and is not suitable for a route identified in the Principal Cycle Network Plan for Brisbane.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to direct Brisbane City Council to cease work on the project; to make the site safe for people walking and cycling; and to revise the design according to best-practice standards and guidelines for active travel suitable at an inner city location in direct proximity to a school.
