STATE MEMBER FOR REDLANDS
CHRISTMAS IS NEARLY HERE!
It’s hard to believe another year has nearly passed and that Christmas is only a few short weeks away! To all our lovely Redlands students that have entered my E-Card design competition, thank you and well done! To all our staff at the Redland Hospital thank you for all that you do and thank you for brightening the days of our patients over the Christmas season, your decorations were amazing! I’m also looking forward to chatting to lots of locals again this year while wrapping with our Lions Club at Victoria Point Shopping Centre; make sure you stop by to get your Christmas cake early!
$80M CLEVELAND REDLAND BAY ROAD STAGE 2 HAVE YOUR SAY
The Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) is planning to duplicate Cleveland–Redland Bay Road, between Anita Street and Giles Road. The project will extend lane duplication works currently under construction from Magnolia Parade to Anita Street, and when complete will see duplication of Cleveland–Redland Bay from Magnolia Parade in Victoria Point to Giles Road in Redland Bay. As part of the upgrade, TMR will signalise the Cleveland–Redland Bay Road and Double Jump Road intersection. The project will increase capacity, reduce peak hour congestion, improve travel time and safety for all users, including active transport users. TMR is now seeking community feedback on the concept option. Community and stakeholder feedback will inform future project stages, including detailed design. Have your say at www.tmr.qld.gov.au
OUR FEE FREE DIPLOMA OF NURSING IS HERE TO STAY FOR 2024!
Thanks to the Palaszczuk Government’s investment of $87.5M we will be offering the diploma next year in 2024. This builds on our skills agreement that has injected more than $200 million into Queensland’s skills and training sector and support over 37,000 Fee-Free TAFE places during 2023. This is on top of the over 60,000 young Queenslanders already supported by our Free TAFE and Free Apprenticeships for Under 25s. This funding has supported around: 10,300 Fee-Free places in the care sector, 12,000 places in technology and digital, 1,600 places in hospitality and tourism, 5,300 places in construction, 900 places in agriculture and 6,900 places in sovereign capability including manufacturing.

A NEW HOME FOR THE UNIVERSITY OF THE THIRD AGE REDLANDS
It was fantastic to see the sod turned on the new home of U3A Redlands on our State Government Redlands Research Facility site all thanks to their success in the super rounds of the Community Benefit Fund Grants receiving $100,000 to build their new home. U3A, like our Donald Simpson Centre, do a fantastic job in supporting our Redlands senior’s community through engagement, activities, education and so much more. I’m so proud our Palaszczuk Government is committed to supporting our seniors here in the Redlands.
