Priority projects get funding in Longman

A new car park, major upgrades to a park and additions to a busy intersection are among the projects in the Longman electorate to be funded by the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) program.

In total, eight priority projects, costing more than $3.3 million, will be delivered by Moreton Bay Regional Council under the LRCI scheme.

  • A 72-space car park will be designed and constructed at Bribie Island Sports Complex, Bongaree, including landscaping, lighting, footpaths and fencing.
  • There will be upgrades to Cosmos Park at Banksia Beach including a new playground, exercise equipment, half basketball court, two new pickle ball courts, seats, drinking fountains and pathway.
  • The intersection of Alma and Marsden Rds in Dakabin will get traffic lights, a pedestrian crossing, new footpaths, bicycle lanes and raised medians.
  • Rehabilitation work will be done on a 52m section of Dunbeath Dve, Burpengary
  • Solar panels and air-conditioning will be installed at Narangba Community Centre.
  • Improvements will be made to softball fields at Dances Rd Sportsground, Caboolture.
  • A 312m section of Riverview St, Caboolture from King St to The Esplanade will see rehabilitation work.
  • The park at CREEC Environment Centre, Burpengary will get new play equipment, BBQ shelters, park furniture, amenities and car parking.

Shovels ready

“We have moved quickly to approve funding for eight new projects across Longman, paving the way for shovels to hit the dirt to make them a reality,” Federal Member for Longman Terry Young said.

“This will provide a vital boost for our local communities, backing local jobs and economic growth while delivering lasting upgrades that will benefit residents for years to come.”

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Barnaby Joyce said $1 billion in funding is flowing under phase three of the LRCI program to councils to improve road networks and deliver priority community infrastructure projects.

“This builds on the $1.5 billion already approved to deliver more than 6,100 projects nationwide under the first two phases of the program,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.
