I am proud to announce that The Nest is now officially open at their new home in a beautiful heritage listed house at 720 South Pine Road,Everton Park.

The Nest is an organisation for women where they can feel safe and connect with other women in the community through arts and crafts.

There are a number of workshops and events scheduled for this month. Please visit their website for more information.

It's a privilege to have such an organisation operating in my electorate. It would be great to see the community behind this worthwhile initiative.

Resurfacing and road safety improvement works on South Pine Rd and Old Northern Rd

Thu 12 Feb 2015

I would like to advise that works will soon be underway to undertake resurfacing and road safety improvements on South Pine Road and Old Northern Road, between Stafford Road and Rogers Parade East.

This $1.8 million project will involve replacing and repairing existing road and asphalt surfaces, linemarking and repairing man holes. These works will provide a safer and smoother surface for road users.

The works are due to commence in late February 2015 (weather, site and construction conditions permitting) and are expected be completed in April 2015.

To minimise traffic disruptions, works will be carried out between 7pm and 5am, Monday to Friday. Single lane closures, temporary property access changes, detours and reduced speed limits will apply during the works. Police, traffic controllers and construction signage will also be in place to safeguard motorists and road workers.

Access to properties on South Pine Road and along Old Northern Road, from Stafford Road to Rogers Parade East, will be maintained.

Nearby residents may experience some construction noise, additional work lighting, dust, odour and vibration during works. Letters will be distributed to nearby residents and businesses providing details of the work and contact information for enquiries.

Information about traffic disruptions will also be available from the 13 19 40 traffic report line and www.131940.qld.gov.au

 


Bunyaville makeover plans

Thu 29 Jan 2015

Picnics in the park are planning to get a whole lot more popular with facility upgrades to Bunyaville Regional Park in the works if I'm re-elected into government.

I have been working with the park rangers and local community groups to gauge how to best improve the park and attract visitors.

Everton residents are extremely lucky to have a regional forest in their own back yard, at just 15km north-west of central Brisbane, it is conveniently close to Brisbane city. 

As part of my election pledge, I will be revitalising the picnic areas to include electric BBQs, new picnic tables and shade structures.

The upgrades will also include improvements to walking tracks, replacing timber infrastructure and general grounds maintenance like weeding and revegetation to ensure our native plants are protected.

 


Prospect Road takes a right turn

Tue 27 Jan 2015

Local motorists will benefit from a vital upgrade at the corner of Samford Road and Prospect Road in Mitchelton under a re-eleted LNP Governement.

Over the past few years I've been approached by a number of mums and dads concerned about the lack of access to Mt Maria College on Prospect Rd, with quite a few raising safety concerns of their children when trying to get home.

As part of the upgrade we will install dedicated turning arrows making life safer and easier for students and parents getting to and from school as well as those who are just trying to get home.

This upgrade would complement the roadworks already undertaken at the Samford Road and Wardell Street intersection.

Only the LNP has a strong local plan to ease congestion and improve safety for local residents.

 


State Government pledge gets the ball rolling for Mitchie FC

Tue 20 Jan 2015

Local soccer players will soon benefit from Queensland's first main artificial surface field in their own backyard.

I recently presented the Mitchelton Football Club with a $400,000 Queensland Government pledge to construct a synthetic playing surface at their home grounds at Teralba Park.

I was more than happy to support this concept after club president, Roger McIntosh had approached me about his vision.

The club and other community groups will benefit from a synthetic turf which will reduce onoing field maintenance and can be used in any type of weather conditions.

The new turf will also be used to promote womens football and will be offered to NPL Queensland Womens and Brisbane Womens Premier league clubs for matches.

This pledge will go towards the $1.2 million project which will bring the club's field up to an international standard and will potentially attract ticketed matches such as Brisbane Roar or the FFA Cup.
