Traffic lights confirmed for Anita Street intersection – another sweet victory..

LNP State Member for Redlands Peter Dowling today confirmed that Labor has announced that traffic lights are going in at the Anita Street and Cleveland-Redland Bay Roads intersection at Redland Bay.

Mr Dowling said that after a tireless fight and campaign to have the intersection upgraded and his continued badgering on behalf of residents to the Minister for Main Roads, the fight has been won and the impact from the local community should be nothing short of victory celebrations.

“This section of road has caused a great deal of trouble for Main Roads. Between the failure to deliver the duplication from South Street to Boundary Road in the late 90′s and early 2000′s and skimping on the road surface medium creating a noise problem, but now the tired Labor
Government have finally come to their senses for the safety of the Redland Bay community.” Mr Dowling said.

The Government announced today that the intersection design is already underway and works are planned to start early next year. The project is expected to be completed by May 2012, weather permitting.

“I will be requesting a copy of the plans from the Minister to ensure that the best outcome for the Anita Street intersection is delivered.”

“The Redlands has been so neglected by the Labor Government over the past 20 years and I can now say that the many Letters to the Minister, numerous Questions on Notice, Petition, several Public Meetings and raising this issue over and again in Parliament has paid off with the community getting safer roads that they deserve.”

“I also have to thank the residents of the Anita Street community who have been proactive and an enormous support in collecting signatures for the petition and setting up the public meetings.” stated Mr Dowling.

A CanDo LNP Government will ensure that Queensland has safer roads and stop the excuses and delays.
