GEORGE HUA TO DELIVER ROAD SAFETY UPGRADES IN HOTHAM
MR GEORGE HUA
LIBERAL PARTY CANDIDATE FOR HOTHAM
Liberal Party candidate for Hotham, George Hua, has announced that a re-elected Turnbull Liberal Government will deliver road safety upgrades with an investment of $1.19 million to improve safety in Springvale and Murrumbeena.
“I have long been committed to fighting for and delivering funding to improve safety on local roads,” Mr Hua said.
“These particular locations will be recognised by locals as sites where accidents have occurred in the past or through their own near misses,” Mr Hua said.
The road safety projects to be carried out in Hotham are:
* Roundabout installation and safety upgrade along Lightwood Road between Springvale Road and Corrigan Road at Springvale: $727,000 to install a roundabout and splitter islands at T-intersections;
* Roundabout installation and safety upgrade along Ellen Street between Villa Road and Bournemouth Avenue at Springvale: $353,000 to install a roundabout and splitter islands at T-intersections;
* Intersection upgrade at Kangaroo Road and Second Avenue at Murrumbeena: $115,000 to install splitter islands at Second Avenue to limit movement to left in and left out only and modify the existing splitter island at Ardyne Street to prohibit the through movement from Second Avenue.
George said the funding would be directed toward roads and intersections that had been identified as dangerous.
“The Turnbull Liberal Government has committed $500 million to the Black Spot Programme from 2014-15 to 2018-19, including an additional $200 million over two years from 2015-16 to improve road safety and infrastructure across the country,” Mr Hua said.
“We have also provided record funding for the Roads to Recovery Programme to support local councils to upgrade and maintain the local road network.”
“I look forward to seeing these upgrades carried out and will also be fighting for additional funding to support further upgrades for our local roads,” Mr Hua said.
