Car V. Community in Kenmore
Plans to build a new road on land set aside in the 1970s have been dusted off by the Queensland government, to the alarm and (in some cases,) suprise of local residents. Opponents suggest that impacts on the community, including the loss of green space, will outweigh the benefits from this decades-old scheme and that there are better ways of improving the dire traffic situation in the region. More information, news and discussion of this issue is presented on the Save Our Kenmore action group website.
