Dr Christian Rowan MP, the State Member for Moggill, is currently sponsoring two petitions to the Queensland Parliament, on behalf of local residents, calling for action to address important community safety concerns on state-controlled roads.
The first petition, closing on April 18, is calling for a review and increase into the frequency of vegetation management – grass and weed cutting – along Moggill Road and Mt Crosby Road, and to highlight the urgent need for safe pedestrian access to the Moggill District Sports Ground.
The second petition, closing on May 21, raises concerns with regards to the lack of adequate road signage for both wildlife and motorist safety, along Mt Crosby Road, and is calling for additional signage at key intersections and crossings.
Dr Rowan is encouraging all local residents who use either Moggill Road or Mt Crosby Road to ensure they add their support to these petitions, so that the State Government can enhance local road, motorist and wildlife safety in our community.
“Local residents in the electorate of Moggill are all too familiar with the inadequate management of vegetation and grass along our key arterial roads (Moggill Road and Mt Crosby Road) and the serious safety concerns that come from the delayed maintenance of these roads.
“On top of this, serious concerns continue to be raised with regards to the safety of both wildlife and motorists along Mt Crosby Road, which is why it is important we let the Queensland State Government know that these safety concerns must be addressed.” Dr Rowan said.
Both petitions are available to be signed electronically online, which can be found by visiting www.drchristianrowanmp.com.au/petitions/
