Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey says he’s delighted with the community’s enthusiasm.

“We’re expecting many more nominations before submissions close tomorrow.”

Mr Bailey says the nominations had come in steadily with interest and input from the community, both local and state-wide.

“So far, most of the received submissions have been for the road. I’d like to encourage everyone to jump online and submit their nominations for the viaduct and twin arch bridges.” 

“Both structures have changed the shape of our landscape and are iconic features to have named after your suggestion.” 

“I would also like to remind schools choosing to participate their nominations are due next Friday.”

There has been a range of names submitted that acknowledge the region’s history, landscape, tourism and people.

The minister says there’s also been a few Rangey McRange Face and Roady McRoad Face submissions, which do not have the support of the Toowoomba Regional Council Mayor, Paul Antonio.

Once closed the hard task will begin to review submissions individually and ensure they meet the set criteria before compiling a list for the committee to review.

School submissions will be accepted through the principal or principal’s representative.
