Bates questions Minister on safety at Mudgeeraba Creek State School

Member for Mudgeeraba, Ros Bates MP has continued to pressure the Labor Government on the issue of student safety at Mudgeeraba Creek State School.

Ms Bates, who secured a commitment from the former LNP Government to deliver flashing school zone lights for Mudgeeraba Creek State School on Gold Coast-Springbrook Road, said lights are urgently needed to secure the safety of students.

“The Labor Government has refused to install flashing school zone lights at Mudgeeraba Creek State School, despite the funding having already been contained in the former LNP Government’s fully costed and audited election costings,” said Ms Bates.

“By ripping away this funding and confirming Mudgeeraba Creek State School is not a priority for the Labor Government, the Minister is putting student safety at risk, with Mudgeeraba Creek being located on a busy main road.

 

“In Parliament today, I have sought answers from the Labor Minister for Main Roads on whether he will now commit to installing flashing school zone signage for Mudgeeraba Creek State School.

“This issue is too important for politics and the safety of students is at stake, so I sincerely hope the Minister does not take thirty days to respond and gives the school community the answers they deserve as soon as possible.”

The Minister’s response is due on 12 December 2015, and local residents can keep up to date at www.rosbates.com.au or www.facebook.com/ros.bates.
