Sourcing critical railway upgrade funding needs cool heads and smart solutions
Close to 2000 Bethania residents are trapped in their own homes as many as eight times a year when the railway crossing boom gates are shut or become stuck.
With only one way in and one way out of the estate, Logan City Councillor Luke Smith (Div 6) said it was a matter of life and death for residents.
“We have already seen residents in need of emergency care unable to be reached by ambulance when the gates are down.”
Cr Smith said the gates were isolating residents between six and eight times a year and for up to four hours at a time.
He said it was absolutely critical that a second entry point for emergency service vehicles be built with the number of residents living on this side of the train line continuing to grow.
