Question for election on River Road closure

BUNDAMBA, north of Brisbane Rd, has experienced massive housing construction over the last several years, and there's more to come.

Part of this area that was submerged in the 2011 flood has been designated a 'special purpose' zone where many truck drivers are able to park their trucks on acreage.

While these developments have occurred, council has seen fit to keep River Rd at the water recycling plant cut off to traffic for years.

As a result, all the traffic on the north side of Bundamba and much of North Booval must negotiate Mary St, the narrow street with cars parked on both sides and crossed by a pedestrian crossing linking the TAFE carpark and a child care centre with the TAFE.

This narrow street is what all traffic, including heavy trucks, wanting to access the Warrego Hwy must use.

This small street is unfit for such heavy traffic.

Which candidate for Division 4 will remove the bollards on River Rd and open up this suburb to Citiswich and the Warrego Hwy for the benefit of residents and businesses?

MICHAEL JOHNSON Bundamba
