What a wonderful historic day it was on Monday 3 October when I joined Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, Deputy Premier Jackie Trad, and other representatives from the State, Local & Federal governments to open the brand new 12.6km Redcliffe Peninsula Line.
The open day, despite the weather, saw locals turn out in their thousands to ride the rails, explore their new stations, and travel the very popular new shared pathway. I spent most of the day at Mango Hill East railway station and there was rarely a time when someone wasn’t going past on their journey along the fantastic pathway.
On Tuesday 4 October I was out and about early in the morning, speaking with commuters at stations, as well as travelling on the line. It was great to meet with so many locals and see them taking advantage of the new bus network, which provides many connections to the new train stations.
