Questions on Notice No 6238
59 Parliament First Session

Question on Notice

Mr Bull (Gippsland East) to ask the Minister for Roads and Road Safety — With reference to the Minister's answer to question on notice No 6123 in relation to the Princes Highway safety barriers:

In that response the Minister refers to a road safety audit that was undertaken for each section after construction was completed. Reference is also made to an independent road safety review that was undertaken in 2020 for the section of road between Stratford and Bairnsdale. In the time since I asked this question, the Princes Highway between Stratford and Bairnsdale has been voted by RACV members in a state-wide survey as the worst road in Victoria. How can I access these reports to respond to renewed community and stakeholder criticism.

Answered: 23 November 2021

I am happy to provide the Member with a briefing from my Department to discuss the findings of the audits and independent road safety review. I will ask my Department to get in touch with the Member to organise the briefing.






The Hon Ben Carroll MP

Minister for Public Transport
