Local residents are encouraged to add their support to the latest petitions to the Queensland Parliament, which have recently been initiated by local residents and sponsored by the State Member for Moggill, Dr Christian Rowan MP.
The latest Queensland Parliament online petition is calling on the Queensland Government to work with all levels of Government to specifically fix the Colleges Crossing bridge, and deliver a flood-proof river crossing which will benefit the whole community, including motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and wildlife.
The resident’s petition comes following the significant disruption endured by local residents on both sides of the Colleges Crossing bridge, caused by multiple severe weather and flooding events.
Earlier last month, a separate Queensland Parliament petition was also launched, highlighting the urgent need for planned and funded infrastructure to address traffic congestion, pedestrian and cyclist safety, as well as emergency vehicle access and flood resilience along state-controlled roads.
“These petitions are an important opportunity for local residents to add their voice to the ongoing advocacy to the Queensland Government to invest and deliver the vital infrastructure that is needed across the western suburbs of Brisbane and specifically, for suburbs in the electorate of Moggill.” Dr Rowan said
“In addition to delivering a long-term and sustainable solution for the Colleges Crossing river crossing, the Queensland State Government must prioritise the delivery of an integrated road and public transport plan for the western suburbs of Brisbane and electorate of Moggill, delivered in collaboration and coordination with all levels of government.
“I strongly encourage all local residents to add their support, and sign and share these petitions.” Dr Rowan said.
Both online petitions are currently open and will close in October, where it will then be tabled in the Queensland Parliament for an official response by the State Government.
Residents can view and signed both petitions online via the Queensland Parliament website:
