Please do not lower the speed limit on Macquarie St

Submitted by TPA Editor on Sun, 18/05/2014 - 12:59pm

I strongly object to lowering the speed limit on Macquarie St
50 km/h is perfectly reasonable and having owned and lived in one of the Catalina houses for years have never felt unsafe crossing the road.
There are better things for the TPA to do than slow down and inconvenience residents.
 Dr Mark Donaldson

TPA Engine Room Objection

Submitted by TPA Editor on Fri, 09/05/2014 - 8:49pm

Dear Fellow TPA Members and Friends
The TPA has lodged an objection (see attached) to this development application and I, along with the committee, offer this as assistance for you to also object if this is your decision.
Below is part of our submission for you to use but it is important that the objection comes as your views, as this carries more weight, so please use this as a guide and add in any other points that you feel is important to the reasons for your objection.

Resident of many years believes Maquarie St and Vernon Tce have become dangerous streets

Submitted by TPA Editor on Wed, 16/04/2014 - 6:39pm

30 kph and several pedestrian crossings would do so much for the area. The current limit is 50 kph and there are no crossings from Commercial Rd all the way into New Farm. I am aware that Macquarie and Vernon form part of a bus route, however the roads are of a similar width to Lamington St (and others nearby) where the limit is only 20 kph. Macquarie and Vernon also now have far more pedestrians crossing back and forth to enter/leave residential buildings, cafes, bars and restaurants throughout the day and in the evenings.

Historic Teneriffe landmark to receive new lease on life

Submitted by TPA Editor on Wed, 16/04/2014 - 6:14pm

Brisbane’s historic Engine Room would receive a full renovation and have a café and public amenities installed under proposed plans to rejuvenate the riverside heritage building in Teneriffe. Acting Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner today announced that Brisbane City Council would put forward an Engine Room revitalisation project for public comment later this month.
