Mr VASTA (Bonner) (13:49): Today I would like to bring to your attention a very serious traffic issue in my electorate of Bonner: the chaotic roundabout at Rochedale Road and Priestdale Road and their associated roads. This is effectively a convergence of traffic from four local schools and an early learning centre. At school drop-off time, it is utterly chaotic. A few months ago, I was approached by Warren Craze, a very concerned local resident and parent of a student at one of the local schools. He spoke to me about the ongoing issues associated with this local traffic hazard, and so immediately after speaking with Mr Craze I began a petition calling for support from the community. I have gathered almost a thousand signatures from concerned locals in just a few short weeks.

This issue has been the topic of discussion for Brisbane City Council and Logan City Council for a while, and thankfully they have just agreed on a way forward and will now begin working on a business case to design and fix this intersection. The total cost of this project is estimated to be $28 million. I'm working alongside the newly elected lord mayor, Adrian Schrinner, and the minister for urban congestion and infrastructure, the Hon. Alan Tudge, to fix this issue. Having grown up in Bonner, I know what my electorate wants and needs and I will always work hard to deliver for them.
