The Annerley Rd-Cornwall St intersection is an absolute headache for motorists, a pain for pedestrians to try and cross, and downright deadly for cyclists. These issues will only worsen with the upgrade of Dutton Park Station, with the Noble Street slipway already a hotspot for heavy construction trucks.
With more and more kids are getting to and from Dutton Park State School, and Brisbane South State Secondary College, through this intersection, it's crucial that we're making this area as safe as possible, and easy to use for people on foot, on bikes, or with prams and wheelchairs.
We'll hear from Active Travel for Annerley, a local community-led campaign for safety upgrades on Annerley Rd. You can sign their petition here.
We've also invited the local councillor and Transport Minister, and hope they can join us for a productive discussion.
To kick off disucssions, a local architect has put together some ideas on how we could improve this intersection. Our community needs:
- Safer pedestrian crossings
- Shaded plazas at Dutton Park Station
- Separated bike lanes on Annerley Rd
Join your neighbours and me on Saturday, 25 March, in Hefferan Park, as we organise together to make this happen.
