Todds Road Level Crossing Future Assured

17/10/2012

State Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich, has today confirmed that the Todds Road level crossing at Lawnton will remain open after the Francis Road overbridge has been completed.

Mr Holswich sought clarification on the future of the Todds Road crossing after several local businesses and residents expressed concerns that the crossing was slated for permanent closure once the Francis Road overbridge opened.

"The Minister has given an assurance that there are no plans to close the Todds Road level crossing," Mr Holswich said.

"This is good news for local businesses who rely on that crossing to bring customers through their front door."

Council traffic modelling has indicated that both the level crossing and the new overbridge are required to cater for future road traffic flows.
