We did it! $12m announced to fix the Newnham Rd-Wecker Rd intersection


There’s been some huge news for the Bonner southside area that will help bust congestion and improve safety for motorists who have to navigate this notorious intersection at Mt Gravatt East.

The Prime Minister Scott Morrison and I have officially announced $12 million to upgrade the Newnham Rd-Wecker Rd intersection!



I launched a community petition last year to fix the Newnham Rd-Wecker Rd intersection after it was ranked the fifth most dangerous intersection in Queensland. Many of you also contacted me calling for action.

Thanks to your support, the petition reached over 1,500 signatures!

Over the last year, I have campaigned hard in Canberra to get the funding needed to make this intersection safer for everyone. Because of the community’s support, I was able to secure the funding needed to fix the intersection and ensure people get home sooner and safer.



Keep an eye on my Facebook page for further updates. You can also contact me directly on (07) 3893 3488 if you have any questions or send me an email at ross.vasta.mp@aph.gov.au.
