Residents draw to the attention of the council the fatal accident that occurred on the 13/06/18 at this location.The businesses on these corners have dealt with multiple serious accidents over time. Myself, my staff and members of other businesses on the corner came to the aid of the victim but he could not be saved. This particular intersection has an extremely high and dangerous level of traffic trying to reach the Ipswich Motorway west bound avoiding the main arterial of Granard Road on ramp by using Boundry Road. The mixture of heavy vehicles and light vehicles cutting the corner and mounting curbs has been witnessed by all businesses on the corner making it extremely dangerous for pedestrians as well. The local businesses and QLD Police have all agreed that a set of lights needs to be installed to avoid the continuing accidents and the possibility of another fatality.

Your petitioners therefore request: A rework of the traffic management plan for the multiple lanes going each way. A set of traffic lights at the T-intersection. Armco railing on corners to protect pedestrians and business shop fronts that are less than 20 metres from the roadway.
