Thanks to the support of thousands of locals, Brisbane City Council has said it will now develop a “business case” to fix the traffic problems around Priestdale and Rochedale intersection.
Concerns exist now however that action is still yet to be taken, 6 months after the funding commitments were secured.
Locals joined forces with State MPs Mick de Brenni MP and Corinne McMillan MP and school students, to win a $14M blackspot commitment from Labor MP Jim Chalmers (which was matched by the LNP), leaving no excuses for Brisbane City Council.
Locals will recall an investigation was ordered by the Qld Minister for Transport Mark Bailey to send a team to assess what needs to be done to address safety for school kids in the meantime. The expert advice is that full signalisation of the intersection is the only practical way to address traffic congestion and road safety.
A meeting of concerned locals will be held in coming weeks to decide what needs to be done to get the Brisbane City Council to act now.
