The Brisbane City Council has allocated more than $14.8 million for a range of services and initiatives in the Pullenvale Ward for 2020/21.

Pullenvale Ward Councillor, Greg Adermann announced funding had been secured for works across the entire Ward, despite Council having to frame a budget in challenging economic times.

“About $180 million in revenue was lost due to coronavirus, so being able to deliver as we have done is a great outcome,” he added.

Cr. Adermann said following his representations, more than $550,000 will be spent on resurfacing the worst section of Kenmore Road.

A further $506,000 will be spent on major traffic improvements at the Kenmore Road and Fig Tree Pocket Road intersection.

Just over $8 million has been allocated for resurfacing, kerbing and channelling (Kenmore and Chapel Hill), footpath reconstruction (Moggill Road, Bellbowrie), safer paths to schools (Moggill State School), congestion busting projects (Rafting Ground Road and Brookfield Road), bridges and culverts reconstruction and rehabilitation (Upper Brookfield and Kholo), upgrading and maintaining our neighbourhood and suburban parks, playground replacements, and the management of conservation reserves (Kholo).

Other major capital investments include $2.6 million to address Brisbane River erosion issues impacting the properties of residents at Illawong Way, Karana Downs, and a further $5.4 million on enhancements at the Mount Coot-tha Botanic Gardens.

Cr. Adermann said he was proud to be part of the Schrinner administration that has again delivered for the Pullenvale Ward.

“I’m confident Council’s commitment to spend almost $15 million in my Ward over the next 12 months on a range of projects will be welcomed by the local community,” he said.
