Managing the priorities of the nearly 20 individual communities that make up the Glass House electorate will continue to be the primary focus of the local Member for 2016.
Glass House MP Andrew Powell, announced his ‘Fighting for Glass House’ campaign in 2015 and since then has established a list of over 25 projects that he is working to deliver for the community.
“I am always conscious of balancing the needs of each individual community as what is important in one area is different to another. I therefore encouraged residents to provide feedback to my office on what they want to see me fight for in their patch.
“Of course there are many projects that were identified when I first became the Member for Glass House in 2009 like the North Coast Rail Duplication, upgrades to Maleny-Kenilworth Road and Steve Irwin Way and I will continue to lobby for these crucial improvements, but this feedback process has enabled me to pinpoint some of the more grassroots projects that we can all work on together.
Some of the other projects on the Glass House Fighting for list include –
• Speed reduction on the D’Aguilar Highway in Wamuran near County Drive
• A pedestrian crossing and a roundabout in Montville
• Upgrades to the Conondale Pool
• A new indoor aquatic centre in Maleny
• Upgrades to the Jubilee Drive intersection in Palmwoods
• Flashing school lights at Peachester State School
• Re-opening of the Glasshouse Mountains Holiday Park
• Upgrades to King John Creek Bridge at Elimbah
• Parking at Caboolture Hospital
• Speed reduction on the D’Aguilar Highway in Woodford near Mary Street
“The start of 2016 signifies my renewed commitment to working for our community to deliver the best results possible.
“I am confident that together we can ensure that the Glass House voice is well and truly heard in the Queensland Parliament and that we are delivering many more local projects this year and in to the future.
