Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP, hosted Minister for Transport and Main Roads, Hon Scott Emerson MP, in the Glass House electorate today.
Minister Emerson attended a luncheon with local residents before visiting the busy Reed Street intersection in Glasshouse Mountains.
“Now that work on the D’Aguilar Highway has begun the Reed Street intersection has become my number one road priority,” Mr Powell said.
“I wanted the Minister to come out and see this intersection for himself to understand the need for an upgrade.
“I have always committed to championing improvements to the road network in Glass House and with work on Maleny-Stanley River Road and Grigor Bridge completed and works on the D’Aguilar Highway underway, the Reed Street intersection is now my main priority.
“I have listened to the feedback from the local residents and I look forward to working with Minister Emerson to further improve the Glass House road network into the future.”
