Rose­wood cross­ing safety up­grade

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

THE John Street level cross­ing at Rose­wood will get a $700,000 up­grade and works are sched­uled to start early in the new year.

Com­mu­nity feed­back and rou­tine re­views by Queens­land Rail iden­ti­fied the site as a pri­or­ity for im­prove­ment and it fol­lows prob­lems at the cross­ing in July.

Mem­ber for Ip­swich West Jim Mad­den said last week’s an­nounce­ment was wel­come news for Rose­wood lo­cals.

“I would like to thank the Deputy Premier and Min­is­ter for Trans­port, Jackie Trad, for sup­port­ing my calls for an up­grade to the Rose­wood level cross­ing,” Mr Mad­den said.

“The up­grade will be­gin with im­proved CCTV that will en­hance Queens­land Rail’s mon­i­tor­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties... im­prov­ing its per­for­mance and mak­ing it less dif­fi­cult for mo­torists and com­muters if faults oc­cur. New boom arms, boom mech­a­nisms and a con­trol hut will also be in­stalled to im­prove re­li­a­bil­ity and re­duce costs.”
