Traffic around the Southside on Calamvale/Pineland/Mains Road is getting worse by the day. Took me 20 minutes to drive from Symons road to Sunnybank Plaza at 8.30am this morning. It used to take me 30 mins to walk the same distance a few years back when I still work at Sunnybank Private Hospital as a physiotherapist. As I see it and what I have been hearing from residents is that there are two issues: (1) Poor development plan neglecting traffic impact to the streets while increasing density too rapidly; (2) ineffective public transport plan.
Over the coming weeks and months, I'll be looking into both issues and learn about what has been happening and propose a way forward for this part of Brisbane.
