Action needed now to bust congestion

Action needed now to bust congestion

MOTORISTS in Greater Brisbane have been reduced to a crawl as congestion hits crisis levels across the region.

 

Liberal National Party Leader Deb Frecklington has launched an online survey to take the pulse of motorists.


Congestion in Greater Brisbane is increasing rapidly and we want to hear from motorists about traffic conditions from their perspective,” Ms Frecklington said.

 

“Whether it’s Gympie Rd in the north, the Centenary Motorway to the west, or the M1 to the south, bottlenecks in Brisbane are severe and only getting worse.

 

“Commuters are spending too long in traffic, which means millions of dollars in lost productivity and people missing out on time that should have been spent with family.

 

“We need to be proactive, rather than reactive, and build infrastructure to bust congestion and improve transport services.”

 

LNP Shadow Minister for Transport and Main Roads Steve Minnikin said the online survey asked residents about congestion, roads and public transport.

 

“Old Cleveland Rd in my electorate of Chatsworth is notorious for gridlock,” Mr Minnikin said.

 

“Results of the survey will help guide policies and planning on congestion-busting projects.”
