Bridges shine brightly for Carers Week

Posted on October 16th, 2017

This week Transurban Queensland, owner and operator of the go via network, is proud to be raising awareness of the significant contribution made by unpaid carers in our community by changing the lights on the Sir Leo Hielscher bridges to coral for National Carers Week.

This is the fifth consecutive year Transurban Queensland has supported Carers Week.

Transurban Queensland Public Affairs Manager Ruth Moody said Transurban Queensland was proud to continue its support of National Carers Week to help educate and promote the important role carers play in the community.

“By changing the colours of the Sir Leo Hielscher Bridges, we hope to raise awareness of the outstanding contribution unpaid carers make to our community, and the diversity of carers and their caring roles,” Ms Moody said.

Transurban Queensland also promoted Carers Week on electronic message signs along the Logan and Gateway Motorways.
