Stannard Road Traffic Lights

During the Brisbane City Council 2020 Election Campaign, I door knocked most of the suburb of Manly West including the streets either side of Stannard Road. A lot of people asked me if it would be possible to get traffic signals for the intersection of Stannard & Wondall Roads and Stannard & Manly Roads or both. 

I have received a response from Council’s Traffic Section that states whilst Council recognises that these intersections meet the traffic warrants for traffic signals to be considered, there are a large number of other intersections which also meet the warrants. 

Currently, no funds have been allocated for traffic lights to be installed at either end of Stannard Road.

Council also advised that that they will add these intersections to the lists of sites to be assessed once things return to normal and they can have some realistic traffic counts done.   I will keep you informed of any progress in this regard.
