Statement from the Principal regarding public transport congestion - 18 February 2015

Hawthorne’s public transport issues will be short-lived, says Principal

Lourdes Hill College Principal Robyn Anderson has said that her school was working with Brisbane Transport to alleviate recent public transport issues affecting students and the local community.

She said that the sudden increase in the school’s population, with the introduction of its first Year 7 cohort this year, had added pressure on public transport, with some local buses becoming overcrowded.

“With any big change, there is always going to be an adjustment period,” she said.

“We are very aware that buses servicing our area have been congested in recent weeks, and are working closely with Brisbane Transport, as well as private bus services, to find a solution that will benefit both our students and our extended community.

“With the state-wide move of Year 7 joining high school in 2015, secondary schools across Queensland have been affected in similar ways, but we are confident that this inconvenience will be short-lived.”

Ms Anderson said that she was appreciative of Brisbane Transport’s response and cooperation on the issue. 

Consultation and negotiations are continuing.
