Responded By: Hon Mark Bailey MP on 10/09/2020

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

Queensland residents draws the attention of the House to the Transport and Main Roads (TMR) proposal dated May 2020 (currently not on the TMR website) that was literally dropped-off in Logan Village, without consultation. This proposal expects to four lane Albert Street, the main street of historic Logan Village, with a raised centre median that will restrict access into and particularly out from the Village for local businesses, residents, visitors and patrons to Logan Village Green events.

This TMR proposal prioritises peak hour through traffic over local access and is contrary to a letter received from the Minister of Main Roads office (ref MC113468) supporting Logan City Council's Logan Village Local Plan (2009-2031) which recommends separation of through traffic from local access.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to:-

  • Require senior TMR representatives to meet with Community Representatives to develop more cost effective alternatives, consistent with Logan City Council's Logan Village Local Plan (2009-2031) which preserve Albert Street local access for businesses, residents, visitors and Village events; and
  • Require TMR to consult with the Logan Village Community and Logan City Council to prepare an overall plan for main and local roads to support growth in the region, including alternatives for north-south peak-hour through traffic, other than Waterford-Tamborine Road north of Logan Village as this road is only two lanes and can be cut for a week or more when the Logan River floods.
