This year, Moreton Bay Regional Councillor Adam Hain has delivered funding for precinct, park and road upgrades in Division 3 as well as a campaign to celebrate everything Caboolture Made and is working on a master plan for Centenary Lakes.
Council’s 2022/23 Budget included significant funding to address traffic issues near Morayfield Shopping Centre by revamping the William Berry Drive and Dickson St intersection.
The $3.6 million project, over two years, includes intersection upgrades, widening of turning lanes, road rehabilitation, pedestrian upgrades and beautification works to make the area much more user-friendly.
The Budget also included $1.5 million worth of upgrades to Morayfield Skate Park at Sheep Station Creek Park to be completed during the 2022-23 financial year.
Other road projects included in this year’s Budget were major road rehabilitation at Bellmere Rd ($1.7 million), Lynfield Drive ($1 million), Henzell Rd (900,000), and Riverview St ($715,000), in partnership with the Federal Government.
Traffic lights will be installed at the intersection of Torrens Rd and River Drive, at a cost of $1 million.
Council will also spend $450,000 at Dances Road Sportsgrounds to renew two softball outfields, with funding from the Federal Government.
In February 2022, there was widespread flooding in parts of Division 3 a significant damage to the Centenary Lakes precinct.
Since then, Cr Hain and Council have sought public feedback on how the area should be redeveloped. Top suggestions included a new water playground or skate park.
Community consultation closed on July 13 and Council will now develop a draft master plan, which will be shared with the community when it is ready. Further consultation will happen at that time.
In March, Council launched the Caboolture Made program, which is designed to celebrate everything that’s great about Caboolture.
Cr Hain said he was proud of the authentic nature of the development of this campaign, with contributions from groups including local Chambers of Commerce, Queensland Police, the health and education sectors and businesses of all sizes.
Also in March, Council revealed its top three preferred names for the new city west of Caboolture. They are: Moreton Valley, Waraba and Brightmore.
The suggestions are now being considered by the State Government.
