Greens unveil CityCat plan for Yeerongpilly - Indooroopilly - Mt Coot-tha

media release 27 February 2009

Greens MP for Indooroopilly, Ronan Lee, Greens candidates for Yeerongpilly, Libby Connors, and Greens candidate for Mt Coot-tha, Larissa Waters, will unveil their party's plan for extensions to the CityCat services tomorrow.

Dr Connors, Ms Waters and Mr Lee will be announcing that the Greens will be pushing for ferry stops at Yeronga, Tennyson, Graceville, Indooroopilly and Milton.

The three Greens candidates will be holding a media conference to launch the policy at the corner of Park Road and Coronation Drive, Milton at 9.15 a.m. on Friday 27 February.

The site overlooks the Brisbane River at Milton above the spot where a ferry terminal would go.

"The State Government should be recognising the important role being played by the CityCats in popularising public transport with Brisbane residents," Mr Lee said.

"The Brisbane City Council should be resourced to increase its CityCat fleet so that the craft can service commuters further upstream, with more stops in-between."

Dr Connors said the Queensland Government needed to recognise the particular problems being faced by the Yeerongpilly electorate and the need for providing regular and accessible public transport alternatives.

"The Yeerongpilly electorate has heavily congested major roads running through it and residents are in urgent need of good, public transport alternatives," Dr Connors said.

Ms Walters said Milton residents found it very difficult to access the CityCat which currently stops only at the Regatta Hotel.

?The Greens plan for a CityCat stop opposite Park Road in Milton will give Coronation Drive residents and caf?-goers a convenient, scenic and low-carbon way of accessing this popular hub," Ms Walters said.

?A Park Rd City Cat stop is even more urgent given the traffic chaos from Hale St Link construction."

Half baked projects, have long term consequences ...

All well and good . . but they conveniently forget that the BCC is already increasing its Citycat fleet and still can't cope with demand on the present Routes. It's also a pity that Mr Ronan Lee is running in a State Government Election and not a City Council Election. Ronan . . that was last year mate you are too late! Stick to State Goverment issues that you might have some influence over Ronan .. if you get re-elected that is.  ::)

It's sad when a party does not even know what services fall within the level of government they are currently contesting for.
