Need to stop garaging of islander cars at Redland Bay

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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House to the need for the Minister for Transport and the Minister for State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning, Redland City Council and Gold Coast City Council to agree conjointly to deliver shorter vehicular access routes to Russell, Karragarra, Macleay and Lamb Islands. It is simply not fair for thousands of residents of those islands to garage (park) their cars many kilometres from their homes at the Weinam Creek PDA Redland Bay, site for a future satellite hospital. Instead they could either travel in their cars by short haul barge or by bridge via shorter distances from the mainland and from Pimpama Island without garaging their cars at Redland Bay. Besides in fairness, no resident, island or mainland should be entitled to garaging their cars in parking spaces in a different postcode - at the expense of the lifestyle and neighbourhood of that postcode. Without delivery of these shorter links, Redland City Council will be forced to plan for alternative garaging arrangements estimated to cost over $100 million dollars, much more than what the shorter links would cost.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure that government delivers shorter vehicular access routes to Russell, Karragarra, Macleay and Lamb Islands as a matter of utmost urgency.
