Pallara is one of Brisbane’s up and coming suburbs, in recent years opening up for housing developments.
It’s located just east of Forest Lake in Brisbane’s South, roughly 22 kilometres from the CBD.
Despite the suburb booming with an influx of new home owners, residents say they still have no access to public transport.
“Residents, business hubs, commuters and family/friends have no way of connecting in and out of our suburb unless you walk 7 plus kilometres through terrain of unpathed streets and main connecting road heavily under construction with road closures, trucks, work vehicles, workers and road which has been patch worked.” – Head Petitioner Sam Spaliviero.
“This is not a safe journey for people of Pallara to endure.”
The residents say that “based on modelling…in 2016” bus services should be available but “5 years later and still no bus services available”.
Residents have started a petition calling on the LNP run Brisbane City Council and their local LNP Councillor to get basic services for their community.
So far the petition has received over 890 signatures.
