Palmwoods community to have their say on pedestrian improvements
The Department of Transport and Main Roads Queensland have undertaken investigations into pedestrian safety improvements on Palmwoods-Montville Road in response to concerns raised by members of the community.
Concept designs have been developed for pedestrian improvements at 3 locations in the Palmwoods township and are seeking feedback from the community to better understand the community preferences on proposed improvements.
The 3 locations are:
- an upgrade to the existing informal crossing point near the Post Office
- an upgrade to the existing crossing point near Rick's Garage
- a new crossing point near the Palmwoods Pharmacy.
Have your say on the upgrades here:
