Peter Cumming’s local area update - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views


In last month’s The Community Leader I referred to long term business Manson Framers as though it had gone out of business.

This is not correct. Manson Framers continues to trade and will continue to do so.

Manson Framers are situated at 6 Ronald St, Wynnum. They are open for business Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm and Saturday 9am to 1pm. Their entrance is opposite Wynnum Central railway station. As well as a framing service they also sell art tapestry, needlework supplies and an extensive range of art supplies and materials.

My apologies for any confusion caused.

Kerbside Collection Is COMING – April 2022.

Council has rescheduled your kerbside large item collection due to flood waste collections.

During the week commencing Monday 4 April 2022 residents in Manly, Wynnum West and Manly West will have their acceptable household items collected.

Please place items for collection on the kerbside prior to or on the weekend of 2-3 April 2022.

Lindum Crossing UPDATE

Aside from the flood issues, late last week Council announced the plans for Lindum Level Crossing. I am pleased to see further changes are to occur. Further improvements are to be made with the installation of traffic signalisation.

The initial works were completed in December. These works included:

  • Installation of a new median island on the northern approach to the intersection
  • Extension of the median island on Lindum Road
  • New longer 12-metre boom gate on the eastern approach
  • New pavement and road line marking.

The next step is described as ‘Short-term Signalisation’.

Project details

  • Realigning the intersection layout to the west of the existing open level crossing, to achieve a perpendicular crossing. This improved geometry will make it safer and easier for road users to travel through the area with improved sightlines and visibility.
  • Installing traffic lights on the roads that neighbour the level crossing to control all traffic movements through the crossing.
  • Installing controlled pedestrian crossing facilities on Lindum Road and Kianawah Road.
  • Removing the right-turn from Sibley Road into Kianawah Road to further improve safety for road users.
  • Installing a U-turn facility on Kianawah Road so those travelling westbound on Sibley Road can access Lindum Road and North Road.
  • New controlled, dedicated pedestrian crossing facility at the open level crossing.
  • New yellow box line marking and road surface.

The impacts are:

  • Removal of right turn from Sibley Road into level crossing, left turn only with U-turn provision on Kianawah Road, to improve intersection safety
  • Two full land resumptions
  • Four partial land resumptions

The project budget is $20 million of which the Federal Government will be contributing $10 million and Brisbane City Council and the State Government will contribute $5 million each.

Construction is to be completed by the end of 2023.
