Regional and rural roads
Victorian Parliament – 22 March 2017 - Ms KEALY - Funding cuts to country Victorian roads are taking their toll. On Sunday a terrible accident occurred on the Horsham‑Lubeck Road, where a severely undulating road surface is being blamed for a single‑vehicle tractor accident, where the bucket caught the tarmac, almost flipping the tractor, and the driver being taken to hospital. This accident was directly linked to the terrible condition of roads under the city‑centric Labor government. Enough is enough. Country people deserve safe roads. Labor must take responsibility for the drastic cuts to the country road budget and immediately inject urgently needed funds to return our roads to a safe state.
