Amber light on Woombye safety

THE new Queensland Government will not commit to installing fixed speed cameras at a notorious Woombye intersection that claimed the lives of five-year-old twins Grace and Jessica Hornby.

Nicklin MP Peter Wellington asked the LNP whether it would follow through the previous road minister's decision to improve safety at the Nambour Connection Rd intersection with Blackall St through a fixed speed camera.

Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said the LNP was committed to a series of initiatives, including on the Bruce Hwy and roads in mining areas.

But he could not commit to any particular projects.

"Because of the deficit we can't afford to do everything," he said.

Mr Emerson said the government would work with local communities to provide necessary infrastructure where and when it could afford it.
