Action needed now to bust congestion

At a busy road in Everton Park, LNP Leader Deb Frecklington said congestion is worsening across Southeast Queensland under Annastacia Palaszczuk and Labor.


“Motorists in Southeast Queensland have been reduced to a crawl and are taking longer to get home each and every day,” Ms Frecklington said.


“This is why I am launching an online survey to take the pulse of motorists and bust congestion.


“Congestion is getting worse and we want to hear from motorists about traffic conditions from their perspective.


“Whether it’s Gympie Rd in the north, the Centenary Motorway to the west, or South Pine Road behind us, 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 Treasurer and local Member for Everton Tim Mander said easing congestion in the Southeast was a priority for the LNP.


“The number one complaint I hear from commuters is that they are spending too long stuck in traffic when they are trying to get home to their families,” Mr Mander said.


“Much more needs to be done to fix congestion in Southeast Queensland and that is why we want to hear from everyday Queenslanders about congestion hot spots in their own backyards.


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