Lindum Station Accessibility Upgrade 

Baysiders, the Lindum Station Accessibility Upgrade is full steam ahead. Lindum Station has now closed to the public to build new platforms, a new footbridge with lift access and many other outstanding accessibility features. 

While the station is being upgraded, Shuttle Bus 229 will operate between Lindum and Wynnum North stations, with a stop at North Road opposite Iona College. Bus Route 224 from Sibley Road, and Wynnum North and Hemmant Stations will also continue operations during the upgrade.

I can’t wait to keep Baysiders updated on the works throughout the year!

50 Years of Education

It’s not every day that someone devotes 50 years of their life to educating young people, and Charmaine Driver, Principal of Darling Point Special School has achieved just that.

It was a pleasure to congratulate Charmaine on this incredible achievement by officially inducting her into the Bayside Greats Hall of Fame. Many Baysiders will know just how hard Charmaine works – she is a true Lytton Local Legend who has positively shaped the lives of many young people.

Congratulations Charmaine!

‘Bring the Beat’ to the Bayside

Baysiders, you can now request to ‘Bring the Beat’ to your suburb.

A Mobile Police Beat is a ‘police station on wheels’ where Baysiders can visit and seek advice and support from local police. They can be strategically deployed at short notice where needed most, responding to changes in crime, trends and community concerns. It’s a great initiative that gives our Bayside greater and more efficient access to police.

ProBuilder Gives Back to the Bayside

I was recently delighted to attend the unveiling of a wonderful public utility – a brand new defibrillator.

Very generously donated by local business ProBuilder, the defibrillator is located at 34 Duncan Street, Wynnum West. Helping to unveil the new defibrillator was Greg Paige, better known as the ‘Yellow Wiggle’ and the founder of the Heart of the Nation foundation – he gave an inspirational speech about the importance of breaking down the hesitancy behind performing CPR and using defibrillators. After all, your actions could save a life!

ProBuilder’s new defibrillator is registered with Heart of the Nation and can be found by downloading their free app, which allows you to also find defibrillators within a 5km range of your location.

A big thank you to Greg for attending, and especially to ProBuilder for such an important and significant contribution to health and wellbeing in our Bayside.

Battery Booster Program

Bayside households will be able to slash their household power bills and maximise the economic benefits of their rooftop solar, with the launch of the Queensland Government’s Battery Booster program.

The program offers rebates of up to $4000 to eligible households looking to install a solar battery system of 6 kilowatt hours (kWh) or more.

Installing a battery system at your home is a great way to store power for when the sun isn’t shining, further cutting power bills and emissions, and reducing load on the grid.

Safer Schools 

I am very excited to announce that one of our Bayside schools is receiving funding as part of the Queensland Government’s School Transport Infrastructure Program. 

Moreton Bay Boys’ College have been awarded $55,000 for the installation of a Red Turn Arrow in the southbound lane of Manly Road, at the intersection in front of the entrance to the College. This project will make the intersection much safer for both students and drivers.
