The Morrison Government is today delivering $400,000 towards planning for the removal of the level crossing at Lindum Station in Wynnum.

Lindum Crossing is well known to local residents as a safety hazard and a traffic bottleneck and is in desperate need of a solution.

Minister for Cities, Urban Infrastructure and Population Alan Tudge said we know this level crossing is a major problem for the local area, and Ross has been advocating on behalf of residents for a long time.

“This funding will allow the necessary feasibility work to be done to investigate the solution to this crossing.”

Member for Bonner Ross Vasta said I’ve been fighting to fix Lindum for almost two years now and following the recent tragedy it has only strengthened my resolve.

“Since 2017 I have gathered more than 7,000 signatures on my fix Lindum petition and it’s clear that residents of the Bayside are in support of a solution to the disastrous Lindum crossing.”

“The Bayside community overwhelmingly need Lindum Crossing fixed and I am pleased to be delivering this funding, but this is just the first step in my campaign to fix Lindum.”

“I will continue this fight and I won’t stop until we have fixed Lindum crossing,” Mr Vasta said.
