As you may be aware, we are undertaking a major upgrade of the Council controlled section of Moggill Road through Indooroopilly. Once completed it will improve safety and traffic flow for residents in the Western Suburbs.

You may also recall that in 2019 the Federal Government committed $12.5 million to upgrade the State Government controlled Kenmore roundabout. The State Government promised to match that contribution, bringing total funding to $25 million.

After residents rejected the State’s sole proposal for a signalised intersection, the Minister for Main Roads, Mark Bailey, redirected the State funding towards a ‘bike only’ solution for Moggill Road. This clearly will not help most residents who are stuck in traffic congestion.

More concerning, we are yet to hear where the $12.5 million of federal funding has gone. Residents deserve to know what is happening with this money and whether it will ever be spent as originally intended – to upgrade Moggill Road.

Remarkably, the new Federal MP for Ryan, Elizabeth Watson-Brown, has celebrated the ditching of this much-needed upgrade, referring to it as a ‘positive step’.

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
