Reedy Creek Traffic Update From Ros Bates Mp

MP for Mudgeeraba Ros Bates is calling on locals to ensure that they follow the
road rules at the Old Coach Road roundabout in Reedy Creek. After a $400,000
upgrade to the roundabout completed in December 2013 to improve traffic flow,
Ms Bates says that a number of people are running the newly installed traffic
lights when approaching from Tallebudgera or even travelling around the
roundabout from the right lane in order to turn left onto Old Coach Road from
Kingsmore Boulevard. Ms Bates said this served only to compound traffic issues,
and reminded motorists to obey all road rules in light of an increased and now ongoing
Police presence in the area.
