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.
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.
The 15 April meeting of TPA will be held, as usual, at 24 Macquarie Street, Teneriffe, commencing at 7:00pm. We have a full agenda, as you can read: 1. Welcome and Apologies 2. Matters arising from last meeting, and confirmation of minutes a. Telstra tower 3. Membership and Fees 4. Teneriffe Park, collaboration with Scouts 5. Correspondence a. BCC b. Central Ward c.

We wanted me to let you know there will be some drainage works starting at the end of Merthyr Rd at the end of April.
If you could take care when using this area of the walkway at that time it would be very appreciated.

After a lengthy period of consideration, TPA has received from Brisbane City Council a response to the petition seeking the introduction of a speed limit, and the provision of improved pedestrian crossing facilities on Macquarie Street/Vernon Terrace and Skyring Terrace. The attached letter from the Council sets out the proposed response, which is to undertake more research and analysis, as you can read.
