Roads, safety, stormwater, parks & planning for Div 7 in 2017/2018


Moreton Bay Regional Council has unveiled its 2017/18 budget for Division 7, announcing road upgrades, flood mitigation projects and future planning for local roads and parks, as well as a safety upgrade for the Dohles Rocks Road interchange.

Division 7 Councillor Denise Sims said $650,000 had been allocated for traffic flow improvements and signalisation at the Old Gympie Road and Boundary Road intersection at Dakabin and Narangba, while $400,000 would be invested in planning and preparation works to upgrade the Brays Road and McClintock Drive intersection at Murrumba Downs.

Cr Sims said a further $4.35 million would be invested in this year’s budget to begin works on the Dohles Rocks Road interchange at Murrumba Downs and improve safety for motorists travelling from and onto the Bruce Highway.

“Following recent incidents in our community, I have also worked hard to ensure this budget includes new safety infrastructure for Ann Street, Kallangur including bicycle awareness zones, pedestrian refuges and islands,” Cr Sims said.

“Beeville Road at Petrie will receive a $200,000 boost in this budget to improve the road’s alignment with the Dayboro Road roundabout as well as beautification works and a zebra crossing.

“A further $2.1 million will be invested in road resurfacing projects throughout the division including Kallangur, Murrumba Downs, Petrie and Dakabin.

“I’m pleased to also announce that council will commit $320,000 to valuable stormwater and flood mitigation projects.

“This includes new stormwater infrastructure for Armstrong Street, Brewster Court and Rochelle Court at Petrie, and funds for initial works on a major drainage upgrade along Anzac Avenue near Petrie Station.

“These are projects that help ensure our communities are better equipped in times of severe weather.

Cr Sims said the 2017/18 budget would also see council invest $180,000 develop the Blatchford Sporting and Recreation Reserve at Murrumba Downs and $400,000 for upgrades to: 
* Ballard Park, Dakabin; 
* Jim Akers Park, Kallangur; 
* Gordon Jackson Park, Petrie; and
* Baybreeze Park at the Northquarter Estate, Murrumba Downs.

New dog off-leash areas will also be established at Penson Park, Kallangur and Reg Dickens Park, Murrumba Downs.

"300,000 has also been allocated to complete construction on the new Moreton Bay SES headquarters at Ogg Road"

Cr Sims said to continue meeting growth in the community, council would this budget invest $2.6 million towards the Dakabin Waste Management Facility, which would continue to provide free tipping for residents.

Cr Sims said she was also pleased to join the Mayor and her fellow councillors in also announcing a $40 million commitment towards civil works at the Mill at Moreton Bay project to help transform the site into a major university campus, community and business precinct.

“It’s an investment in future generations.”
