Narre Warren South electorate
Ms GRALEY (Narre Warren South) — (Question 7625) My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety and concerns the intersection of Pound and Shrives roads in Hampton Park. I ask: when will construction begin on the long-awaited and much-needed upgrade at this notoriously dangerous intersection, an intersection that only the Andrews Labor government has been willing and able to fix?
After years of excuses and inaction under the previous, failed Liberal government, we have got on with it and provided $5.2 million for this vital project. Countless local residents have contacted my office to express their joy and sheer relief that finally something is being done. For too long they have found themselves stuck in traffic, facing lengthy delays and bumper-to-bumper traffic after yet another avoidable accident. We are getting on with fixing this nightmare intersection and investing in upgrading and improving local roads to ensure that local residents spend less time in traffic and more time with their families.
