Residents draw to the attention of Brisbane City Council the danger to children and other pedestrians crossing Land Street near the access to the underground tunnel to the riverwalk along Coronation Drive, and children's play area in Moorlands Park. Motorbikes and cars with very loud mufflers are increasingly using Land Street as a speed way and the associated noise pollution, apart from the danger to any person using Land Street is a major concern.

This petition therefore requests that in the interest of safety of children and pedestrians, we, the citizens of Land Street ask the Brisbane City Council to explore the potential for Local Area Traffic Management. This is especially timely with the proposed second tunnel being built for the safety of bicyclists and pedestrians who use the riverwalk along Coronation Drive. Any method to slow traffic in Land Street would be to the benefit of safety for local residents, especially children.
