Labor is quick to spruik about funding country roads – but rural Victorians still aren’t seeing any real improvement.
Rather than using funding for expensive billboards, the Government should be focusing on actually fixing roads, and fixing them properly the first time.
Country motorists are sick of the waste. They are sick of risking their lives going about everyday tasks, like driving to work or taking the kids to school.
Setting up a new department, reducing speed limits or installing wire rope barriers is not addressing the core problem – the shocking and dangerous condition of road surfaces.
It’s time to get back to basics and build and repair roads properly, the first time.
