Victoria’s Roads Minister has been asked by Gippsland East MP, Tim Bull, to seal the shoulders of Sale-Maffra Road.
“The road is used frequently by many of my constituents from Maffra, Bundalaguah and surrounding areas as well as a number of visitors to the area,” Mr Bull told Parliament this week.
“My office has been contacted a number of times by constituents who are concerned about the road state of the shoulders on this section of road.
“It is the main route between Sale and Maffra and being a farming district, it is also used by heavy vehicles for the transport of livestock.
“My constituents believe the current surface and the condition of the shoulders is at an unacceptable standard and that sealing would greatly increase their level of safety.
“Despite cuts to both the road assets and operations budgets in the past two years, I would hope this project can be completed,” Mr Bull said.
The Minister has 30 days to respond to this question.
