Green light for traffic bottleneck

Posted: 2pm 10 Dec 2020

Work will start in January 2021 to tackle the growing congestion on roads around Mango Hill State School during drop-off and pick-up time.

Traffic signals, pedestrian crossings are being installed at the intersection of Mango Hill Blvd and Bonnet Pde , the main approaches to MHSS.

It is scheduled to be completed in a 5 week timeframe that will take construction to the middle of February 2021, weather permitting.

Councillor Jodie Shipway (Div 4) says the project has been accelerated with funding from the Federal Government.

Forward thinking

“The support from the Federal Government and (Member for Petrie) Luke Howarth to bring this much-needed project forward will see the community with safe transport options for the start of the 2021 school year,” says Cr Shipway.

“Being a parent of this school and a Mango Hill resident, I see this on a daily basis and have seen far too many near misses for my liking.

“I am pleased to have been able to advocate for the delivery of this project to be bought forward in line with the community requirements and expectations.”

Very happy

Mango Hill State School will have close to 1500 students next year and that will rise to around 1800 making it one of the largest state primary schools in Queensland.

“This upgrade will help families at Mango Hill State School during pick-up and drop-off times,” Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth says.

“The Federal Government is very happy to partner with Moreton Bay Regional Council as it has a good record of providing infrastructure quickly.”

Renee Walls, President of MHSS P&C, supports the move: “As a parent, I drive this route every day and have seen the changes over the years,” she said.

“I am very pleased to see an upgrade being delivered for our community.”
