Tyre Inflation Facility at Rainbow Beach

Eligibility - Queensland citizens

Principal Petitioner:

20 Ibis Court
RAINBOW BEACH QLD 4581

Total Signatures - 831

Sponsoring Member: Mr Tony Perrett MP

Posting Date: 29/06/2020

Closing Date: 9/08/2020

Tabled Date: 11/08/2020

Referred To Hon Leeanne Enoch MP on 13/08/2020

Response Due: 10/09/2020

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

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House that for 40 years Rainbow Beach businesses have carried the burden of filling approximately 800,000 tyres/year on 4WD vehicles that travel to our area to drive on the beaches in Cooloola and Fraser Island National Parks. The State Government, through the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service, receive permit fees from each and every vehicle and advise those vehicles to lower their tyre pressures. In an egregious failure of duty of care the State does not supply a free facility to reinflate those tyres to ensure the safety of those travellers once they return to our roads.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to urgently build and administer a free 24 hour Tyre Inflation Facility at Rainbow Beach to service Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service customers' requirements.
