Traffic calming in Battery Hill
Work is underway now to install traffic calming devices along Browning Boulevard in Battery Hill, in response to community concern over driver behaviour. This was first raised by the former Battery Hill Neighbourhood Watch group and council undertook investigations before determining how to best address the issue. The intersections of Ikara, Rowell and Grant Streets were identified as suitable locations for these devices. Construction includes installation of traffic islands, additional street lighting and line marking. It should be completed in early December (weather permitting).
Candidates need to identify their commitments to Sunshine Coast
I would like to see state election candidates and political parties outline their commitments to ensure Sunshine Coast receives a fairer share of funding in the future, particularly for public transport infrastructure. State government infrastructure investment has not kept pace with growth and our infrastructure and facilities cannot respond to the needs of the existing, let alone the future, population. I encourage you to ask your local candidates how they will commit to improving this for our region – we cannot go without this funding any longer.
Keep an eye out for my latest divisional newsletter, which will be hitting letterboxes in the coming days. It contains information about new council projects in your local area.
I’ll be at Currimundi Marketplace for my last ‘mobile office’ of the year on November 24 from 9-11am. I hope to see you there.
