Roads - Advocacy 2018
Our South West Region currently carries more than 25% of the state’s freight and that this figure will grow to over 30% in the next 10 years. VicRoads data clearly indicates that arterial roads in the Great South Coast Region are by far the worst in the state particularly for distressed pavement, cracked pavement and rutted pavement.
Recent investment in Great South Coast roads by the Labour Government is welcome and is already starting to have an impact.
It is important that this level of investment is maintained in the maintenance of the arterial network and that the road widening program continues for the entire next term of government.
