State Member for Redlands Matt McEachan has welcomed progress on critical road works at the intersection of Mount Cotton Road and Double Jump Road.
Mr McEachan said the interstation has long been a dangerous part of the road network in the Redlands.
“The upgrade will provide a much safer road environment not just for locals but for visitors to the area.
“It’s part of my ongoing commitment to ensure key infrastructure is delivered to meet the growing demands of the Redlands,” Mr McEachan said.
Mount Cotton resident Craig Luxton said the upgrade was a big relief for locals.
“There are a lot of young families in this area and we all worry about driving along this particular part of the road.
“I’m glad we have a local member who is committed to the safety and wellbeing of residents.”
Mr McEachan continues to fight for the upgrade of Cleveland-Redland Bay Road from Magnolia Parade to Double Jump Road.
