Roads funding

Constituency Question

Danny O’BRIEN (Gippsland South) (14:49): (438) My question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and I ask the minister to provide details of the road funding, including a list of projects, for the Gippsland South electorate for the current financial year. The Gippsland South electorate – I know the minister probably is not aware of it – covers South Gippsland, parts of Wellington and parts of Latrobe city. I know she follows me on Facebook and looks at my selfies, but I would actually like her to fix the roads instead and do her job. We have got the South Gippsland Highway having additional speed reductions repeatedly – 60 kilometres an hour in two sections now and quite a number of 80s. The road to the Prom is an absolute disgrace. We have got potholes everywhere. The Strzelecki Highway, the Hyland Highway, the Princes Highway – the number one highway in the country with major potholes on it that are having to be constantly repatched. I would like to know what in fact is being spent on Gippsland South roads in this financial year.
