Reconstruction of two kilometres of the Stratford-Maffra Road are ‘being considered’ by the State Government.
Having raised the condition of the road in State Parliament and the need for surface improvements, State Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, said he was pleased to be advised by the Minister that two sections are being ‘considered for funding’.
“Whilst there is no guarantee as yet, I would certainly hope the requests I have made on behalf of the community are listened to and the considerations lead to the work being done,” Mr Bull said.
“I do a lot of travelling around the electorate and of all the roads that are used by strong traffic volumes, I would have to say from my perspective, it is the stretch most in need of an upgrade.
“In his response, the Minister has advised that two sections of the road, approximately two kilometres in length, had been identified for reconstruction.
“The road has well over 100 patches along its stretch of 6-7 kilometres and crumbling shoulders in several locations.
“It is pleasing to know it is on VicRoads’ radar for works, the objective now is to get it completed as soon as possible,” Mr Bull said.
