Concerns over truck traffic in Eagleby

Eagleby locals have raised concerns over the increased use of a highly-trafficked road in the area by trucks.

Over the past year, there has been an reported increase in the use of Fryar Road, by trucks.

The use of the road is believed to be linked to the the Living Gems Crystal Gardens project on Eagleby Road.

The increase in trucks along the road, has caused traffic issues, while community members have raised allegations of trucks speeding.

To take away traffic from Fryar Road, some trucks began using Schmidt Road, but it was reported that Schmidt Road struggled to handle the traffic.

Councillor Karen Murphy says she has been contacted by residents concerned about trucks on Fryar Road.

“I am in contact with the construction company working on that project and continue to liaise with them on behalf of the community to help work through any concerns raised.

 

“I want to make it clear that Logan City Council have no legal authority to investigate allegations of speeding trucks, that is the responsibility of the Queensland Police Service.

 

“I work closely with the Eagleby Police Beat to address issues of community safety and they are aware of the community’s concerns.”

Over the next couple two to three weeks, approximately 20 to 30 trucks will be in the area daily for two to three weeks.

There will be truck movements in the area until late February/early March, however truck traffic is expected to decrease from then.

To report traffic-related matters, contact Policelink on 131 444.
