Shaun thanked JRA volunteers for the revegetation project that is evolving jointly on Vicinity and Dept of Main Roads land that comprises the Detention Basin beside the old Mitre10 site.

WOOD PARK NAMING CEREMONY

On a potentially wet Sunday 19th June, some 60 members comprising West Centenary Scouts/Cubs/Joeys, WaCC members, JRA with local residents, Water Wood with extended family and Cr Matthew Bourke turned up for park activities and the official naming ceremony.

A short window in the predicted wet weather allowed the scouts to demonstrate some of their activities such as damper making and for WaCC to install a further 300 plants in the water course.

The following 75mm of rain was a bonus for the newly installed plants.

Petition Outcome

JRA wish to thank those 2044 residents and business employees who registered their support petition and those businesses that assisted with its promotion and collection.

 

Petitioners should not be disturbed with the Ministers reply that no further action is occurring.

It is not the sole decision of ministers to prioritize road infrastructure projects but cabinet.

What has not been said in MP Mark Bailey’s reply?

Dept of Transport and Main Roads officials are currently liaising with the Petitioner to arrange an on-site meeting with a selected group of Petitioners to discuss the possibility of alterations to the 2011 design plans for the Sumner Road Bridge duplication and associated intersections.

This meeting will occur in early December and through JRA face book site, FRIENDS will receive updates - when it is appropriate...

With the opening of the Legacy Way and subsequent increased traffic density, some anomalies to the existing design of the Sumner Road flyover and off ramps have arisen and these with alternative suggestions will be proposed and discussed.

 

In the gathering of Petitions, much valuable information on how motorists are coping with the increased traffic congestion has been obtained.

We know how motorists are rat running in avoiding Sumner Road where possible

 

Our first goal is to have the best design that will cater for the return of those motorists that are rat running and of course - future traffic growth.

This can only be achieved by the approval of TMR engineers working in conjunction with BCC engineers.

 

The second Goal is to prioritise the project ahead of many other road corridor locations throughout the State that also need funding.

For a major project to proceed, funding must first be locked into the State Budget of the current government which is presented mid year 2016.

 

The problem with this is that a new government doesn’t have to honour the previous government’s Budget items.

Remember when Mr Attwood was our State MP?

She was successful in having the project budgeted but alas- still no commencement.

 

The Petitioner also requested a viewing of the latest design plans for the missing link in the Centenary Motorway from Moggill to Sumner Road.

We also know that many residents are experiencing greater noise emissions from the increased traffic volume along the Centenary Motorway through tired or missing sound barriers.
