Berwick residents and visitors will enjoy safer local roads under a new commitment announced today by the Liberals and Nationals.
Under our plan, a Matt Guy Liberals and Nationals Government will commit $2 million towards upgrading pedestrian safety with traffic lights across the Princes Highway near the entrance to Wilson Botanic Park in Berwick.
Despite a long history of countless accidents and near misses, for years the Andrews Labor Government has refused to fund a much-needed upgrade of this busy and dangerous intersection.
Member for Gembrook and Liberal Candidate for Berwick, Brad Battin, said roads in the outer south-eastern suburbs had been neglected by the Andrews Labor Government.
“There have been too many accidents and close calls coming into Wilson Botanic Park but Labor still hasn’t responded to ongoing safety issues in the Berwick community.”
“Local road users and pedestrians will no longer have to take unnecessary risks thanks to this vital upgrade under a Matt Guy Liberals and Nationals Government.”
