IN THE HOUSE | ROADS DATA

October 19, 2023

Mr TEHAN (Wannon) (16:18): I rise today to call for more transparency when it comes to the allocation of road funding. What we're seeing from states and territories is them hiding data that shows the conditions of roads right across our country. To get access to this data, I was forced to use freedom of information against the Victorian state government to find out the conditions of the roads in Wannon. And what that freedom of information request showed was that we need immediate investment in our roads.

The Australian Automobile Association have a campaign calling for every state and territory government to release this data now. The road toll is going up and we need data-driven investment in our roads. I call on every member of the House to get behind this call for state and territory governments to release the data about the conditions on our roads. And not only that, but I also call on the federal government to honour the election commitment that they made. They said they would ask all states and territories to release this data before allocating the billions of dollars they give them when it comes to road funding. We need more transparency to save lives on our road and I call on everyone to back this campaign.
