An influx of traffic, departures and growing congestion for Redlands is at the heart of a joint Redland Council and Brisbane City Council pledge to widen Green Camp Road.
Brisbane’s Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has promised to spend $1.3 billion on new road projects including widening the road bottleneck between Redland City and Brisbane, turning four lanes into a larger and easier gateway for commuters using Rickertt Road over on his side of the Boundary sign.
After the announcement of upgrading Green Camp Road and Rickertt Road, there has now been talk of bringing infrastructure opportunities to our side of the creek according to Redland City Mayor Karen Williams.
“I really encourage any money being spent on the boundaries of Redlands and will be continuing to work with the Cross Boundary Transport group to make sure we can get the best outcomes,” Mayor Williams says.
“I mean we are bordered by Brisbane City Council, Logan, a little bit of Gold Coast and Moreton Bay so we need to make sure we can get in and out of the city as easily and quickly as possible.”
“We are still working to bring new road projects to the other side to make sure this impacts our residents positively.”
Other areas targeted under the scheme include Old Cleveland Road at Carindale, cracking down on congestion through another $16 million going towards 50 suburban road projects across Queensland.
Tackling traffic issues for Redlanders seems to be in a much closer reach for 2016.
