Have your say on roads, Numurkah
Reports that Daniel Andrews will reduce the speed limit to 70 km/h on some unsealed country roads is just lazy policy by a lazy government, Member for Northern Victoria Luke O’Sullivan says.
The Andrews Labor Government has flagged the government is considering a proposal to reduce the speed limit on unsealed country roads to 70km/h.
But Mr O’Sullivan says the Melbourne-centric Government should instead commit to properly funding the maintenance and upgrade of crumbling country roads to keep motorists safe.
“Our country roads are vital to keeping Numurkah moving and connected,” Mr O’Sullivan said.
“But the State Government is spending less on road maintenance, causing our roads to crumble and putting lives at risk.
“Daniel Andrews’ lazy response is to reduce the speed limit to 70km/h on some country roads.
“The better solution is to provide adequate funding to maintain and upgrade our country roads.
“Rural and regional councils have consistently called for the return of the Liberal Nationals’
Country Roads and Bridges Program, axed by Daniel Andrews and his Labor Government.”
Mr O’Sullivan is fighting for more funding for country roads in Numurkah to keep our community safe on our travels.
“I’d like to know what you think,” Mr O’Sullivan said.
