Martha HAYLETT (Ripon) (14:51):

My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. Minister, how is Regional Roads Victoria working to fix the Western Highway between Burrumbeet and Beaufort in my electorate? I am getting non-stop inquiries from locals about this stretch of road, which so many members of my community rely on. There are serious safety concerns with this stretch of road, with many drivers having to travel in the right-hand lane due to potholes and other damage. The Western Highway is one of Victoria’s most crucial trade and travel routes, with our agricultural sector relying on it every day to get their goods to market. It is crucial for many communities across Ripon that this road be fixed and done properly. I look forward to providing residents with the minister’s response.
