No funding to fix intersection of Stafford Road and South Pine Road

Wed 14 Jun 2017

Desperately needed funding to fix traffic congestion at the intersection of South Pine and Stafford Roads at Everton Park was missing from this week's State Budget.

The State Member for Everton, Tim Mander, said he was extremely disappointed there is no end in sight to the long and frustrating wait to get through this intersection each day for tens of thousands of commuters.

"Not only are people wasting precious hours of their week sitting in their cars here, but the intersection at South Pine and Stafford Roads is also dangerous."

"I have been expecting the results of skid resistance testing on the right turn movement from Stafford Road into South Pine Road after several minor car accidents on the intersection in the last 12 months. The State Government still has not provided the results of the testing," said Mr Mander.

Mr Mander said he was pleased the government re-announced some operational funding for the Youngcare facility at Albany Creek that was originally committed by the last LNP government in 2014.

Everton Hills Residents Appeal for Better Bus Service

Mon 20 Mar 2017

Member for Everton, Tim Mander, has endorsed a local petition to improve bus services for residents in Everton Hills.

He said the current routes no longer cater for current and future population growth in the vicinity of Henderson, Buckland and Bennetts Roads.

Mr Mander encourages every resident to sign the petition online at the Queensland Parliament website, in his office or at various local businesses, and join the campaign to improve these services so the traffic on our local roads doesn't grind to a halt in peak times in the next few years.

No More Repairs for Eyesore Fencing

Fri 10 Mar 2017

 

A regular inspection of Old Northern Rd/South Pine Road prompted State Member for Everton, Tim Mander, to request some maintenance work along this road.

'With 52,000 vehicles using this road every day, it is important that the department prioritises safety for maintenance work and the comfort of local residents", Mr Mander said.

  • TMR have inspected fencing along South Pine Road opposite Eatons Hill Tavern and deemed it beyond repair - however any replacement fencing has not been budgeted for by the Palaszcuk government.
  • TMR have repaired broken panels for timber fencing between Wruck Crescent and Faheys Road.
  • TMR have advised they will clean the median strip on Old Northern Road between Faheys Road and Dargie Street.

Residents can always call or email the Everton Electorate Office or TMR directly on 13 19 40 with any issues about the maintenance and safety of our state roads.

Taking Ice Off Our Streets

Wed 15 Feb 2017

 

In recent years, we've seen an alarming spike in the use of the drug ice in regional and remote communities.

Despite this growing scourge, it has taken the Palaszczuk Labor Government two years to announce a plan to tackle ice.

Unlike this do-nothing Government, the LNP has shown leadership.

Last year, we introduced a five-point action plan to take ice off our streets through crime prevention, drug addiction services and strong enforcement.

LNP leading the way on domestic violence laws

Mon 6 Feb 2017

 

Three tough DV measures already announced by LNP with more to come next week.

LNP laws would ensure victims and families will be alerted when someone charged with domestic violence related crimes is being considered for, or has been grant bail.

Victims and families will also be alerted when someone with a DVO is being considered for parole, even if the reason they are in prison is not related to domestic violence.

LNP will reverse the presumption for bail in domestic violence-related crimes such as assault, grievous bodily harm, deprivation of liberty, strangulation and kidnapping.

LNP legislation to be introduced in first week of Parliament.

Talk is cheap, action is required - while Labor review, we will do.

Queensland lives at risk while Labor sits on parole report

Tue 24 Jan 2017

 

The Palaszczuk Labor Government is refusing to release an independent review into much-needed changes to Queensland's parole laws, despite having received the report two months ago.

On a visit to Townsville today Shadow Corrective Services Minister Tim Mander called for the Premier to release the Sofronoff report immediately to ensure critical reforms to parole were fast-tracked and dangerous criminals weren't walking Queensland streets.

"The revolving door of parole must be shut for offenders that pose a risk to the community. Every day Labor deliberately dithers is another day the Premier puts Queensland lives at risk" said Mr Mander.
