A joint State Government and Redland City Council project of $450,000 will relieve the parking and public transport issues at One Mile, while improving the safety of the jetty.
The final act of the LNP Government for North Stradbroke Island residents was to provide majority funding of $345,000 to the project to make the One Mile experience safer and better for local residents and visitors.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads will commence work in March this year, after carefully considering the parking, public transport needs and safety concerns of local Dunwich residents.
This project which is expected to be completed mid-year delivers on my commitment to Straddie residents to provide a new safe turnaround and drop-off area and a safe public transport experience via the bigger and better buses.
The 40 parking spaces provided at the Dunwich Secondary School, the entrance to Yabby St and adjacent to the boat ramp have been welcomed by locals who have been calling for parking relief for some time.
