Pound and Shrives Roads intersection

Ms GRALEY (Narre Warren South) — (Question 6499) My question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety and concerns the intersection of Pound and Shrives roads in Hampton Park. I ask the minister to provide an update on works to upgrade this notoriously dangerous intersection — an intersection that the previous government refused to upgrade despite the regular accidents and lengthy delays local residents were forced to endure.

Instead it is the Andrews Labor government which has provided $5.2 million to fix this intersection, an announcement it made within its first 100 days in office. Local residents were thrilled by this announcement and now regularly contact my office requesting an update on this important project. Many took part in my community-led campaign to have this intersection upgraded, and I ask the minister to provide them with an update on this very important project.
