Regional and rural roads - Members Statement

Victorian Parliament - 1 November 2017 - Ms KEALY — Finally, after years of lobbying and strong advocacy by the local community, we are seeing some roadworks in western Victoria. This is on the back of hundreds of calls from the community, concerned about road issues, to VicRoads in support of my Report a Road Hazard campaign. The Andrews Labor government have cut hundreds of millions of dollars out of country roads funding, scrapped The Nationals country roads and bridges program and now have been forced to run a significant community campaign to get our roads fixed. This simply is not good enough for country Victorians, who deserve to be able to drive on a safe road surface. I thank the community for getting behind my Report a Road Hazard campaign. Through their support we have finally seen some road maintenance works in the region, but we have only just started. Let us keep up the fight for our fair share of roads funding.
