Press Release - Jackson Road Footpath Upgrade

Lord Mayor Graham Quirk is delivering smoother footpaths for southside residents with a $70,376 footpath upgrade now complete over a 318 metre stretch along Jackson Road, Sunnybank Hills.

Local Councillor Kim Marx (Karawatha Ward) said the footpath upgrade was part of her commitment to providing more pedestrian and cyclist friendly travel options.

“We want to be known as an active and healthy city, and delivering infrastructure that makes it easier and safer for people to get around is another way we are working towards this,” Cr Marx said.

“This financial year each of Brisbane’s 26 councillors have access to $398,000 from the Ward Parks and Footpath Trust for new footpaths and park improvements.”
