Dangerous driving on the roads around Everton Hills has prompted Moreton Bay Regional Council to take action in the interests of public safety.
Division 10 Councillor Matt Constance said he was alarmed by the number of incidents in recent years and numerous reports from residents about hooning and dangerous driving behaviour and would immediately launch a road safety trial to find a solution.
Cr Constance said he hoped the road safety trial would help to reduce traffic incidents and ‘remind motorists to slow down and stick to the speed limits.’
The trial has been welcomed by local residents who have long been concerned about dangerous driving in the area. In addition to the installation of the speed cushions, council will also build a pedestrian refuge at Bennetts Road to further improve road safety. Installation works are completed and council will continue to collect speed and volume data throughout the trial period.
