ALI KING LABOR’S CANDIDATE FOR PUMICESTONE

LABOR CANDIDATE CALLS FOR COMMUNITY INPUT ON BRIBIE ISLAND ROAD

Labor’s Candidate for Pumicestone Ali King has called on our community to have their say and help shape a Bribie Island Road Action Plan. “I received positive feedback from locals on the news that works will start later this year on the intersection of Old Toorbul Point Road and Bribie Island Road. But there’s still so much more to do.

That’s why I’m calling on the Minister for Transport & Main Roads to work with me on a Bribie Island Road Action Plan.” Ms. King, who uses Bribie Island Road every day to commute to work, says she understands the frustration of our community that time spent sitting in traffic means less time spent with loved ones.

In her letter to the Minister, Ms. King states that she is also concerned traffic congestion will discourage visitors to the Island, with flow-on impacts for local businesses. “Our community needs a long term plan for Bribie Island Road that prioritises upgrades for the most congested and dangerous sections.”

“I am also seeking an urgent briefing from the Minister’s office or department representatives on what work TMR has done or is doing to plan for long term upgrades for Bribie Island Road.”

Ms. King is urging residents of Pumicestone to share their opinions and have their say on the Bribie Island Road Action Plan by visiting https://actionnetwork.org/forms/have-your-say-bribie-island-road-action-plan
