D’Aguilar Highway Petition – June 2011

The safety for motorists along the D’Aguilar Highway continues to be a constant concern for local road users.  The Government knows this road is a hazard yet they refuse to hand over the money that is needed to make necessary upgrades and ultimately save lives.  A funding submission was put to the ‘Black Spot Funding’ program and all requests for an update on the submission have gone unanswered from both State and Federal Governments.  At the request of locals I have started a petition calling on the Government to reduce the speed limit along the D’Aguilar Highway between Rangeview Estate and the D’Aguilar Township to 80km per hour.  Let me be clear, this is just an interim solution – we will not give up the fight for the whole road to be upgraded.  But while we wait, this is one way we can try to reduce the accidents and fatalities on the D’Aguilar Highway.  The E-Petition can be accessed by the following link – http://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/view/EPetitions_qld/CurrentEPetition.aspx?PetNum=1705
