The LNP will keep fighting for Redlanders’ fair infrastructure share including vital road upgrades and addressing car parking congestion.

Opposition Leader Lawrence Springborg visited key infrastructure priorities in Redlands with local MP Matt McEachan yesterday.

“I saw first-hand the frustration many locals feel trying to get a park at the Weinam Creek Ferry Terminal,” Mr Springborg said.

“It was good to visit the area and get a real understanding of what the community is putting up with.

“This area clearly needs to be redeveloped and car parking has reached its capacity.

“Redlands and the Southern Moreton Bay Islands continues to grow and we need to ensure there is adequate infrastructure to support the local community.”

Member for Redlands Matt McEachan said he was working closely with Redland City Council and Southern Moreton Bay Islanders to secure a real solution for the ferry terminal.

“I am looking forward to seeing the revised submission for the Weinam Creek redevelopment to ensure the best outcome for locals,” Mr McEachan said.

Mr McEachan said as part of the visit, the Opposition Leader and neighbouring Member for Cleveland Mark Robinson inspected the Cleveland Redland Bay Road.

“The LNP had a plan to deliver the much needed dual-laning along Cleveland Redland Bay Road and this Labor government should honour and deliver what was a fully-funded project,” Mr McEachan said.

Mr Springborg said that it was disappointing the Palaszczuk Government were happy to hike up registration fees but weren’t willing to invest in fixing congested roads such as Cleveland Redland Bay Road.
