A notification posted to local residents gives details ot the propoal to upgrade the Gympie Arterial Road alongside Baringwarra Drive and the Barungwarra Bushland Reserve as well as sections of the Bruce Highway and the Gateway motorway.

We have advised on our interests in how the project will effect the Scar Tree and also requested inclusion of wildlife fencing along the side of our reserve
After many years of sitting near the Scouts tree bed, the Mulluck Heap is no more. Glen annd Bob removed most of the old vegetation on Tuesday 11th August and the rest of the bushies helped to relocate the remaining soil at the Saturdayworking bee on 15th August. The remaining soil has been used to slightly extend the Scout tree bed.
New signs at the reserve.
Brisbane City Council has now replaced our old and damaged sign nearthe car park with this brand new sign. It’s the samme desin as the old onebut has our group’s name displayed, which was missing from the old one.
BCC has also added the story sign to the Stan’s Way sign. This is the same as the originnal sign which was removved during the process of building the new car park .Sadly, the BCC signwriters where not the only ones active in the park, Some Graffiti artists defaced the other Stan\s way sign and also Stan’sseat for good measure. What a shame these vandals couldnt spendsome tine helping us with the weeding at the reserve
