Moggill Road

U-turns at Birkin Rd

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Friday, 21 March 2014 10:09

I have recently received a number of reports about the increasing number of drivers performing illegal U-turns at the Birkin Rd intersection in Bellbowrie.

I understand that there is some community discontent at the lack of an official U-turn at these traffic lights and indeed I have previously presented a petition to Parliament to this end.

It is, nonetheless, simply not safe to perform a U-turn at this intersection as it currently stands.

I have passed these reports on to Senior Constable Dan Egan, our new Bellbowrie Police Beat officer.

Senior Constable Egan is on the ball and already well aware of this increase in unsafe behaviour. He has advised that this intersection will continue to be closely enforced.

I would urge residents to exercise their good judgement and use the nearby designated U-turn area, otherwise you are risking a fine or, worse, involvement in a serious accident.

It has long been one of my top priorities to remedy the dangerous conditions faced by pedestrians who must cross Moggill Road at the Grandview Road bus stop.

Over the years I have pushed extremely hard for a solution to this problem: meeting repeatedly with successive Main Roads Ministers; tabling a petition; and delivering speeches in Parliament to draw attention to the pressing need for a safe pedestrian crossing. 

I have just recently met with both the Director-General of Transport and Main Roads and our local Regional Director to discuss this problem in greater depth.  At this meeting, I hammered home to them the importance of addressing this important issue before someone is seriously injured.      

I also again highlighted the appalling neglect that Moggill experiences when it comes to access to public transport services and I requested that a proper paved Park n Ride be constructed at the current ‘unofficial’ Grandview Rd location.   

I am very optimistic that we will see an outcome to this issue sooner rather than later.

 

 

It shouldn't take a tragedy to get action

I was very distressed to hear that a pedestrian had involved in an accident at the Grandview Road bus stop area on Moggill Road earlier this week.

As many local residents would be aware, I have been fighting a battle to improve safety at this intersection for many years and it should not take a tragedy before something gets done.

I would ideally like to see traffic lights and a safe pedestrian crossing installed.

A pedestrian refuge in the middle of the road has also been suggested but with the rise in the road restricting driver’s visibility I believe that signalising the intersection would be the best solution.

It is something I have been pushing hard for with both previous and current governments.

On Moggill Road – Slow Down

In answer to a Question on Notice that I put to Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson, I obtained the below information for speed camera offences on Moggill Road.

It should be noted these are speed cameras and do not include the manual enforcement of school zones which would make the figures significantly more dramatic if they were included (these figures are not available to me).

You will notice that though the number of offences jumps around depending on the amount of time that cameras are in place along Moggill Road, the number of speeding motorists detected is dramatic.

The other trend you will notice is that 2012, the most recent year, a huge 2910 motorists were booked on Moggill Road. This is nearly a thousand above the number just five years ago.

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Friday, 24 August 2012 13:32

The Department of Transport and Main Roads is carrying out roadworks along Moggill Road, from Priors Pocket Road to Moggill Ferry, Moggill.

These works are scheduled to begin on Monday 27 August  2012, and are expected to be completed by Wednesday 29 August, weather permitting.

Works will be carried out daily from 7 am to 5 pm and at night from 5pm to 12am, Sunday to Thursday.  

While the works take place, reduced speed limits and temporary lane closures will be required, with traffic controllers on-site during construction hours. There will also be some noise and dust associated with these works.

For up-to-date information about roadworks and road closures, please visit the 13 19 40 Traffic and Travel information website at www.131940.qld.gov.au.
