Bike Lane Needed for Dangerous Stretch of Currumbin Creek Road
This petition had 546 supporters
Currumbin Creek Road between Galleon Way and Drumfish Drive requires an on-road bike lane in order to improve safety for cyclists and provide improved passing conditions for motor vehicles.
Currumbin Valley is the most popular cycling route in the Southern Gold Coast, and is an asset for local cyclists and cycle tourism. However this specific stretch of road poses a serious threat to cyclists due to poor infrastructure, with the absence of an on-road bike lane.
Currumbin Creek Road is the most direct route from Currumbin Beach to Currumbin Valley for cyclists coming from Palm Beach, Currumbin Waters, Tugun, Kirra and Currumbin Beach (and beyond) and has been used by local cyclists for decades. Most nearby and connecting main roads have well established on-road bike lanes such as Bienvenue Drive, Galleon Way, Thrower Drive, Sarawak Avenue, Tahiti Avenue & Mallawa Drive. Which poses the question why does this key section of dangerous road not have a bike lane?
We petition MP Jann Stuckey to pursue a permanent resolution to this matter by constructing an on-road bike lane on Currumbin Creek Road between Galleon Way and Drumfish Drive. Taking such action is in keeping with the state governments published cycling strategy which includes goals of "cycle networks that are complete, connected and integrated with other transport modes", "more cycling, more often in Queensland" and help foster "Positive perceptions of cycling throughout Queensland."
Cyclist numbers have been increasing at a significant rate on a local and national level for 10 years, and this will only continue. It is clear that action must be taken to introduce this key piece of infrastructure to allow safe egress for cyclists.
