Andrew Powell MP

When Andrew Powell MP, Member for Glass House, launched his ‘Fighting for Glass House’ campaign earlier this year, one of the first items on the agenda were improvements at the Jubilee Drive intersection in Palmwoods.

“The Palmwoods community have been seeking improvements at this intersection for years and it really is a no-brainer.  This intersection is just plain dangerous even outside of peak traffic times.

“Essentially this community is in a holding pattern until the North Coast Rail Duplication is completed but with the current government refusing to take responsibility for the duplication and cough up any money I suggested they consider looking at improvements to this intersection as a standalone project,” Mr Powell said.

After writing to the Minister in May, Mr Powell finally got a reply in late August that advised – due to a lack of accidents at this intersection – it was not high on the priority list.

“To be honest, I’m outraged.  I am shocked they apply this sort of approach and can’t understand why they don’t take preventative measures in these sorts of cases so that we can avoid any tragic accidents occurring in the future.

“I recently discussed the intersection with the Palmwoods Business and Community Association. As I said then, I’m open to community suggestions. Some relief will come with the Sunshine Coast Council’s place making upgrades and a subsequent speed reduction but I am interested in knowing what other ideas exist out there.

“I’m encouraging community members in Palmwoods and surrounds to get in touch with my office to show your support for and make suggestions on changes at Jubilee Drive.  If we can gather enough community momentum, I know we can show the government how desperately we need these safety improvements.

During the last few months I have had countless people in Glass House contact me with projects they would like to see delivered in our community. There is no shortage of projects we can work on together and my challenge as the local Member will be to ensure I work as hard as I can to accommodate the needs of people in all 20 of the individual townships that make up the Glass House electorate.

The Glass House ‘Fighting For’ wishlist will continue to be a work in progress and anything you identify in your community can be added to the list. All suggestions are welcome at any time so feel free to email my office as you identify something–

Some of the local issues we have compiled so far – .

  • Palmwoods/Eudlo – the North Coast Rail Duplication, more funding for sporting groups including cricket, soccer and tennis, upgrades to the Jubilee Drive intersection
  • Chevallum – a permanent school crossing supervisor
  • Montville – pedestrian crossing at the Info Centre, roundabout at the Western Avenue
  • Maleny – upgrades to Maleny-Kenilworth Road, new indoor Aquatic Centre, ‘kiss and go’ for Maleny State School, upgraded police station, pedestrian crossing at Maleny-Stanley River Road
