Waterford-Tamborine Road

Waterford-Tamborine Road

The Queensland election is our chance to lock in funding and timeframes to upgrade Waterford-Tamborine Rd from Logan Village to Waterford.

Congestion is already a major issue along Waterford-Tamborine Road, with 14,000 vehicles using this single lane road every day through Tambourine, Jimboomba, Yarrabilba, Logan Village, Buccan and Waterford. With 50,000 people expected to live in the state developed area of Yarrabilba in the coming years this situation will continue to become worse without determined action now.

Roads in and around Logan Village become gridlocked during peak hour and at school drop off and pick up. Traffic can often be at a standstill for more than a kilometre north and south of the town centre.

Traffic is impacting the community with access to schools being difficult and unsafe and traffic at a standstill during peak travel times. A sense of safety is paramount in everyone's mind and the current state of Waterford-Tamborine Road weighs heavily on the minds of residents.

If you think it's time to fix congestion on Waterford-Tamborine Road tell your candidate it's time for Logan's fair share.

We need
  • $7-10 million for detailed design and project funding to upgrade Waterford-Tamborine Rd between Anzac Ave and North St (Logan Village)
  • $10 million for a business case to upgrade the remaining length of Waterford-Tamborine Rd from North St (Logan Village) to Kingston Rd/Albert St (Waterford).
Why it matters
  • Congestion is already a major issue, with 14,000 vehicles using this single lane road every day through Tambourine, Jimboomba, Yarrabilba, Logan Village, Buccan and Waterford
  • Roads in and around Logan Village become gridlocked during peak hour and at school drop off and pick up, affecting access to local shops and services
  • Traffic can often be at a standstill for more than a kilometre north and south of the town centre
  • The road has inconsistent speed limits, is narrow, tree-lined, and hazardous due to uneven surfaces and damaged road edges
What does it mean for you:
  • Less congestion means less time spent sitting in traffic and more time to spend doing things that matter to you
  • Congestion will continue to get worse in coming years without action now
  • Safety will improve with upgrades to this road
