Community Update - Great news for Moorooka Ward residents

The preferred design to construct a four-lane overpass at Boundary Road rail level crossing in Coopers Plains has been released following approval of the final business case by the Department of Transport and Main Roads. The $399 million project will now progress to detailed design.

Please visit: Boundary Road (Coopers Plains), rail level crossing (tmr.qld.gov.au) for a comprehensive community update including all relevant maps.

The project webpage is to be updated shortly and will include a new computer generated fly-through.

500x711 Community update

The following response has been received today from Cr Tracy Davis (Civic Cabinet Chair for Environment, Parks and Sustainability) on behalf of the Lord Mayor:

 
▶️ Following the 16 November meeting, Council agreed to arrange a coordinated approach with the State Government on the section of Stable Swamp Creek between the footbridge in Kookaburra Park (near Tramore and Leeds Streets) and Marshall Road (the western section). A letter from Council to the State Government to commence these discussions has been sent. For your information, the northern bank of the creek in this section is largely in Council's ownership and the southern bank of the creek in the western section is entirely owned by the State Government.
 
▶️ As mentioned at the meeting, Council officers are working on a plan to continue the vegetation and clearing works which were previously undertaken on the Council controlled sections of the creek from the Kookaburra Park footbridge to Beaudesert Road (the eastern section).
 
▶️ Once this planning and design work is complete, Council will be in a position to undertake work on the western section, subject to approval and a joint funding agreement with the State Government. Given the community concerns around this, I can confirm this will be a high priority project for consideration in the next Council budget, subject to reaching agreement with the State Government.
