Traralgon Maffra Road

My constituency question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and it relates to the terrible state of road surfaces in my electorate. On 10 February Mr Carroll said his government will be delivering ‘smoother and safer journeys for motorists’. Well, my constituent, Dennis, who lives in the Latrobe Valley, is a truck driver who frequently travels along the Maffra-Traralgon road, and he has told me that the section between Frasers Lane and Guyatts Road is rough, patchy, unsafe and way too narrow for cars, let alone for trucks. This particular stretch of road was very tragically the site of a fatality last year. Minister, my colleague in the lower house Tim Bull has asked you to come to our part of the state, his electorate of East Gippsland. Will you also include in your tour a visit to this road and commit to properly sealing it with proper edges instead of poor-quality patch-up jobs?
