Residents want crackdown on truckers' dangerous rat run

IPSWICH City Council is investigating claims from Goodna residents that heavy vehicle drivers are taking a potentially dangerous shortcut on their way to the Redbank industrial estate.

Tyre business owner and Brisbane Terrace resident of 27 years, Wayne Corbett, said he had been tracking heavy traffic on the street for the past three years, taking careful note of which trucks had been using the route when they shouldn't be.

It is understood Ipswich City Council has conducted enforcement against offenders in the past, however Mr Corbett said the problem had recently worsened.

The Queensland Times has been told a development permit condition prohibiting the use of Brisbane Tce east of Monash Rd applies to the newer logistics, freight, and other new industries in the new industrial estate at Redbank.

In a response to questions from The Queensland Times, a council spokesperson said they were aware of the complaint from Brisbane Tce residents and were investigating it further.
