Major upgrade to boost safety at busy Newstead intersection

 A busy intersection in a bustling inner-city suburb will soon be much safer and cater to increased traffic with Brisbane City Council commencing a major congestion-busting project in Newstead.

Infrastructure Chairman Adrian Schrinner said off the back of Council’s renewal of the urban centre, Council is investing $1.2 million to upgrade the intersection of Commercial Road, Skyring Terrace, and Vernon Terrace to cater to added growth locally.

PARKing Day in Robertson Street

Submitted by Ben Pritchard on Fri, 18/09/2015 - 3:42pm

Tonight, Friday 18 September, there will be a street event in Robertson Street, Fortitude Valley (the James Street end of the street). It is PARKing Day - an event to use the street for people, not cars.

The event has been organised with the assistance of our very own Cameron Perkins, Executive Committee member of TPA. The event is an example of how communities can reclaim streets in their area and use them for community building events. Get along tonight - any time after 4:00pm - and see what can happen.


Letter from Cr Howard

Submitted by TPA Editor on Wed, 16/09/2015 - 6:35pm

Dear Teneriffe Resident

I wanted to let you know that the Planning and Environment Court has given approval for the re-purposing of the disused former Engine Room on Macquarie Street Teneriffe. The existing brick building is in need of repair, and it would be best used as a café style facility for the benefit of everyone to experience this lovely heritage building.
