Australia Post says no to Everton Park Postal Services

Thu 12 Oct 2017

Australia Post has refused pleas from Everton Park residents to provide a local Post Office.

In response to a letter from State Member for Everton, Tim Mander, requesting they reopen a service, Australia Post blamed an 'ongoing decline of customers' for the closure of Everton Park Post Office.

Angry Everton Park residents are bewildered by the cost cutting exercise especially in light of the recent multi-million dollars given to outgoing CEO Ahmed Fahour.

State Member for Everton, Tim Mander, echoed the calls for the Post Office to remain open.

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 every day for tens of thousands 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 that 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.

Get Queensland Working

Mon 4 Jul 2016

I believe Queenslanders deserve a Budget that gives them hope and optimism for the future – a budget that drives economic growth and investment, creates jobs for our young people and delivers the services and infrastructure we all need.


Instead, in mid-June the State Government delivered a budget of broken promises that relied on raiding $4 billion worth of public servants’ superannuation to prop up the budget black hole.

Contrast this with the LNP's Get Queensland Working which will provide targeted support for small businesses and workers in our Everton electorate. Our plan aims to provide jobs for up to 20,000 young people across Queensland.

In government, the LNP would provide:

  • $5000 incentives for businesses who take on new apprentices from beginning to end.
  • $500 vouchers for tradies who complete their apprenticeships to get the tools they need to get working.
  • $4000 grants over 12 months to assist small businesses with recruitment and start-up costs for eligible young Queenslanders (15-24) who are unemployed and not enrolled in full-time education or training.
