Residents draw to the attention of Council the importance of improving and prioritising safety at the intersection of Rickertt Road and Chelsea Road, Ransome. This unsignalised intersection carries significant volumes of through-traffic between Brisbane and Redlands and - particularly during peak times - it can be extremely difficult for motorists using Chelsea Road to find a safe gap in the traffic on Rickertt Road. As a result, this intersection has been the location of numerous accidents and near-misses.

Petitioners therefore request Council to urgently investigate suitable options for safety improvements to this intersection - such as the installation of traffic signals or a roundabout - so that necessary budget funding for an upgrade can be sourced as soon as possible.
