Gippsland South The Nationals Roads

LTE Well done on Ruby Strait

Dear Editor,

Last year I had a number of complaints about the road works on the Ruby Strait section of the South Gippsland Highway between Leongatha and Korumburra

I took this up with the Minister for Roads because the work was clearly inferior, bumpy and uneven.

I was pleased that the Minister and VicRoads responded that further work was needed and would be undertaken over summer.

It’s easy to criticise agencies when they get it wrong, but having now travelled the finished Ruby Strait over the last few weeks, the road has been fixed.

Credit to VicRoads and contractor, Fulton Hogan, for what is now (belatedly) a good job.

There is much more work to do and I will continue to lobby the Melbourne Labor Government to improve our local roads.

Yours sincerely,


Danny O’Brien

Member for Gippsland South
