State Projects in Logan West Get a Boost
Mt Lindesay Hwy, Rosia Rd to Stoney Camp/Granger Road
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Queensland Government has boosted its investments in supporting jobs, infrastructure and services in the Logan West area. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey and Logan MP Linus Power have announced funding for the continued improvement of the Mt Lindesay Highway in Logan West – adding to the jobs and construction currently occurring at the expansion of lanes between Rosia Rd and Stoney Camp Rd/Granger Road intersection.
Mt Lindesay Hwy, Stoney Camp/Granger Road to Chambers Flat Rd
The Queensland Government has just announced the fast tracking of funding to upgrade the next section of the Mt Lindesay Hwy from Stoney Camp/Granger Road to Chambers Flat Rd. The $37.5 million upgrade will add to the more than $100 million in Palaszczuk Government funding to date for the Mt Lindesay Highway. A total of $2.5 million dollars has also been allocated by the Queensland Government to finalise the design. These improvements will increase the safety and efficiency of this section of the highway while also providing jobs to construction workers. They have also released a statement that, “motorists can expect funding for more upgrades and jobs under the Palaszczuk Government.”
Munruben Ambulance Station Under Construction
The construction of the ambulance station at the Chambers Flat Rd exit of the Mt Lindesay Hwy in Munruben has also started to make progress with the slab and frame finished. The distance between ambulance stations along the Mt Lindesay Hwy - Hillcrest and Jimboomba - and delays from traffic congestion, meant that ambulances couldn’t respond to emergencies in a timely manner. The completion of the Munruben station will have local paramedics reducing the waiting time, and saving lives in our growing communities.
The station will operate 24/7 and employ over 30 staff while working with the existing stations based in Jimboomba and Hillcrest in responding to emergencies. On top of this, the current construction of the station has also created job opportunities for construction workers in this difficult time.
