DEMAND for light rail on the Sunshine Coast has been reignited by a community association this week.
Representatives from the Sippy Downs and District Community Association have pushed for Deputy Premier Paul Lucas to put his department to the task of considering light rail for the region.
On Thursday, members of the association and Kawana MP Jarrod Bleijie met Mr Lucas about the Palmview Development.
Plans to link the sprawling project with “greenlink” public transport routes has long been opposed by the association because they may be flood prone or environmentally damaging.
President Murry Lyons said better public transport plans needed to be put in place before they would be backed by the Sippy Downs community.
“We asked the Deputy Premier if during the analysis by an independent consultant and the council, additional options including light rail could be considered,” Mr Lyons said.
“Mr Lucas was very receptive to this proposal.”
