Bulimba Creek Bikeway - New LED Lights
Last night’s massive fire was the final straw. Time’s up for TriCare! Like most local residents, I’ve really had a gut-full of the lack of action on this derelict and dangerous eyesore at 880 Creek Road (the old Salvin Park Nursing Home). Last year, the owners of this site, TriCare, committed in writing that demolition of the derelict buildings would kick-off in early 2018. I’m yet to see any evidence that their commitment is going to be kept. Please sign my petition to show TriCare that the community wants the old Salvin Park Nursing Home demolished and cleaned-up ASAP. Click here to show your support:
At the top of the world (kind of)

We promised to upgrade the Green Camp Road corridor and we’re delivering on our commitment. The $28 million project will kick off mid year.

Thanks to Ross Vasta MP, Andrew Laming MP and the Federal Government for coming on-board to support the project with a $10 million contribution.

I rarely post about Federal Politics, but I am thankful to see that Peter Dutton is looking at ways to help persecuted South African farmers.

We have many former South Africans in our local area and they are fantastic citizens who love Australia and make a great contribution to our community.

The Home Affairs Minister is considering how to help white South African farmers with visas.

It has been reported today that the iconic ‘Australia’ sign from Brisbane’s Expo ‘88 is up for sale. Cr Murphy and I reckon this iconic sign is something worth saving. Do you agree? Should Council buy the sign for $5,000? Tell us your thoughts.

*UPDATE*: We’ve had confirmation that an anonymous buyer has purchased the signs and offered them to an historical society to ensure they are saved. The signs will be restored and put on public display.

Brisbane debates the fate of its Australia signs from Expo '88 after high school students post it for sale on social media.

A lot of work has already gone into strategic planning for Brisbane’s future transport and traffic needs, but most importantly, we need you to have your say!

Very impressed to check-out Brisbane Airport’s first fully-electric bus today. Council is keen to learn from the team at the airport to see how this technology performs in day-to-day operations.

Earthworks for Rochedale’s long-awaited Town Centre shopping and community precinct are progressing well.

This Coles project will include a major investment in public infrastructure, including intersection upgrades, construction of new roads, the provision of a new park and the refurbishment of the old St Philips Church for use as a Council-owned community hall.

Once completed, local residents will be able to do their shopping within the suburb, instead of being forced to drive elsewhere.

Yesterday’s #busjam - Another day, another bus jam at the Cultural Centre Busway Station, clogging-up Victoria Bridge.

After years of State Government inaction, we can’t wait any longer. Only Council & Team Quirk has a plan to deal with this massive bottleneck at Brisbane’s busiest transport hub: Brisbane Metro.
