Government pours $3 million into rollout. The days of the pedestrian crossing dash could soon be a thing of the past for Queenslanders, with the state government set to introduce new smart technology at key intersections. Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey on Friday announced $3 million for the rollout of the technology to up to 300 crossings over the next two years. It follows successful trials of the technology at Logan, the Gold Coast and Bundaberg, which Bailey said had “demonstrated market improvements in traffic efficiency and pedestrian safety”.
