Sourcing critical railway upgrade funding needs cool heads and smart solutions
THE process to overhaul a dangerous Brisbane level crossing where a woman died earlier this year has officially started.
Community consultation opened today for a long-awaited fix to the Lindum level crossing with an online forum launched to engage with residents of Brisbane’s bayside and pop-up engagement booths to be held throughout this month.
The news comes after more than a decade of commuters, politicians, local residents as well as students, teachers and parents from nearby schools calling for change at the crossing and just months after the Federal Government announced $85 million of funding for a solution along with a $40 million contribution from the Brisbane City Council.
The State Government has contributed $400,000 towards the feasibility study.
Federal Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Alan Tudge said the upgrade would help bust congestion and improve safety and accessibility.
“We’re keen to hear from residents who use this intersection every day, so we can make sure we get this right the first time,” he said.
“We’ve launched a survey website and will make pop-up stalls available near the station so we can hear from residents and local businesses how we can improve safety and accessibility.”
Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the comprehensive study would also look into the precinct more generally to address a range of issues.
These issues included safety, improving bus and rail facilities and connections, park ‘n’ ride facilities, bike riding infrastructure and accessibility requirements.
