I am very pleased to share some good news with our neighbourhood.
Thanks to a little bit of persistence, a lot of support from everyone who signed my petition and the successful lobbying for a funding commitment during the last Federal election, we now have confirmation that the traffic around Rochedale Rd and Priestdale Road intersection will get the fix our community deserves.
You can read the two letters of commitment from the newly elected Mayor of Logan City and the Lord Mayor of Brisbane City. I want to thank them for agreeing to work collaboratively on this important project.
The Federal Government also committed $14 million to help fix the controversial intersection during the last election.
Analysis undertaken by the Queensland Government’s Department of Transport and Main Roads looking at school crossings in the area, concluded that the best way to improve safety would be to replace the roundabout with a signalised intersection.
The Mayors have indicated that they will progress a funding agreement and start the planning works. Even though this is a significant project that may take some time, residents can now be confident that a solution has been found and work can commence.
