I was delighted to learn recently that funding has been allocated for the future upgrade of the Steve Irwin Way between Bowen Road and Amy Drive in Glasshouse Mountains.
As the local member since 2009, I have seen this community grow and prosper steadily in that time and have no doubt this upgrade will have an enormous positive impact on the lives of local residents.
The community has been concerned at the increase in small, yet significant accidents and also traffic congestion in this area over the past three years so this announcement is a step in the right direction.
Funding for this project has been allocated under the Queensland Transport and Roads Investment Program 2012-13 to 2014-15.
My job now is to get this project delivered sooner!
