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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the inadequacy of vegetation maintenance management for the state-controlled roads of Moggill Road (Chapel Hill to Moggill) and Mt Crosby Road (Pinjarra Hills to Karana Downs).

The inadequacy of the vegetation maintenance schedule, including the scope of maintenance and inability of the state government to respond timely to overgrown and obstructive vegetation, has further exacerbated the genuine safety and visibility concerns of pedestrians, cyclists and road users within the community. There is also an urgent need for safe pedestrian access from Col Westaway Oval to the Moggill District Sports Ground.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House that the Minister for Transport and Main Roads, being the Minister responsible for the Department of Transport and Main Roads, to review and increase the frequency and scope of vegetation management along the state-controlled roads of Moggill Road and Mt Crosby Road.
