The Labor State Government must deliver the critical infrastructure and services that residents of the electorate of Moggill, and the western suburbs of Brisbane, deserve and need for a prosperous future.
State Member for Moggill, Dr Christian Rowan MP, is calling on the Palaszczuk State Labor Government to listen to the needs of local residents.
“Our local area needs planned infrastructure commitments, so that our local community isn’t continually playing catch up.” Dr Rowan said.
Dr Rowan’s Budget Wishlist for the electorate of Moggill is as follows:
An Integrated Road and Public Transport Plan with funded solutions to ease traffic congestion, and improve public and active transport services.
Extend the 444 Bus Service to the Moggill District Sports Park, also increasing public transport service timetables and extending public transport routes to service residents of Anstead, Karana Downs and Mount Crosby.
$4 Million for a New School Hall at Kenmore State High School and committed funding for dedicated purpose-built learning environments including a new library and student services administration hub, sports centre, and a new performing arts auditorium.
$150 Million for A New High School for families in Karana Downs, Mount Crosby, Karalee and surrounding suburbs.
Fully Funded School Infrastructure for every local state school according to their School Strategic Infrastructure Plans, including refurbished D and C Blocks for Kenmore State School, outdoor shaded infrastructure for Mount Crosby State School, and the rejuvenation of the school oval at Pullenvale State School.
$5 Million for a New Community and Neighbourhood Centre to better support the vital work of local community and not for profit organisations.
Enhanced Footpath and Pedestrian Infrastructure along Moggill Road and Mt Crosby Road, including key pedestrian travel points through Pullenvale, Pinjarra Hills, Mt Crosby, and a dedicated footpath to the Moggill District Sports Park.
Increasing the vegetation maintenance schedule to ensure overgrown weeds and other debris is regularly maintained to a high standard and to eliminate serious safety and visibility concerns.
Additional police resources, and a boost in funding to our Kenmore and Pinjarra Hills Ambulance Stations.
Dedicated Funding for Local Environment and Creek Catchment Groups to support the ongoing and vitally important efforts to preserve, maintain and rehabilitate our local environment and creek catchments.
Further Targeted Support for Small Businesses to create and protect jobs and additional grant funding programs for the western suburbs of Brisbane.
Additional Public Hospital Beds, an end to ambulance ramping and access block, along with indexed and fair public hospital funding particularly for the Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital, the Princess Alexandra Hospital and Ipswich Hospital which reflects population growth and demographic changes.
“I will be closely following the handing down of Labor’s Queensland State Budget next week to see what it holds for the western suburbs of Brisbane. After seven years, Labor must fund and deliver the vital infrastructure and services that all local residents deserve.” Dr Rowan said.
