Save Lives in Logan - Install Traffic Lights on Carnage Corner

For the 4th time in just over 12 months the infamously high risk intersection of School & Chambers Flat Road(s) claims its last victims.

As a resident of property on this intersection, we are  typically the first responders on the scene instigating emergency services. 

We have seen first hand, the totally unnecessary near misses (daily), serious incidents & catastrophic events that occur which have resulted in fatality.

Countless reports have been made to the Logan City Council, our local Representatives & any other ear that would listen - to be told "yet to be reviewed" by the Department of Main Roads, Local Developers & Civil Infrastructure Committee. 

No action has been taken. Zero. All notifiable incidents have been recorded, further investigation "TBA". 

As a result of incomplete & improper Risk Management from the 2017-2018 infrastructure construction in this location, road users have & continue to be at higher risk of serious incident approaching & utilising this intersection. 

Improper signage, inadequete merge & slip lanes not to mention the ambiguity of line marking & lack of speed management render this intersection, proven as one of the most dangerous as a result of poor civil works execution.

Risk Assessments qualify this intersection as High Risk with Catastrophic Consequences, requiring engineering control measures be implemented.

Failure to control already identified flaws, proven causal factors & implement cost effective recommendations has seen this intersection claim its last victims, the most recent - the day this petition was authored.

As a community we must do more to force proper discussion, collaboration but lost importantly - CHANGE to protect our families.

We petition to local council to take action this time. To take action on behalf of the community who need to feel safe. The community that is sick of seeing lives wasted as a result of poor planning & incomplete civil works.

A community that has been screaming for support and fallen silent with those who yield the power to make decisions regarding this solution.

Sure we can claim that "Driver Error" can be identified in almost 100% of Incidents but does this remove our knowledge or responsibility to improve traffic interactions at this intersection? 

We petition for;

IMMEDIATELY: STOP SIGN INSTALLATION (SCHOOL RD ONTO CHAMBERS FLAT)

REDESIGN MERGE & TURN LEFT LANES FOR SAFER & PROPER TRAFFIC FLOW WITH CLEAR VISIBILITY FOR ALL ROAD USERS.
