Roads and Roads Safety Rhyll Newhaven Road

Melina BATH (Eastern Victoria) (12:50): (348) My constituency question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. My constituent writes to me out of frustration with the ever-deplorable state of our regional roads. This particular road is in Bass Coast and indeed on the wonderful Phillip Island. Road resurfacing seems to have ground to a halt in their opinion and maintenance has gone by the wayside. It is highly frustrating that cars are often damaged – broken rims – and it is even potentially more dangerous than that. Major collisions can happen. My constituent labels the Rhyll-Newhaven Road as indeed ‘quite dodgy’. The question I ask on behalf of my constituent is: when will the minister prioritise roads on Phillip Island and specifically the Rhyll-Newhaven Road for maintenance?
