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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House the need for a safer passage on the State controlled road from Gympie to Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach on the Cooloola Coast. Statistics show this road is the second most dangerous road in Wide Bay, marginally behind the Bruce Highway. There has been 14 deaths between 2011 and 2018 and 312 crashes between 2001 and 2019, equating to one crash every three weeks.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to ensure the upgrade of the road from Gympie to Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach and to provide a proper and safe passage for residents and tourists as a matter of urgency.
