NATIONAL ROAD SURVEY LAUNCHED

June 24, 2024

Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan is calling on Wannon residents to nominate a road or intersection in most need of upgrade by completing a national road survey launched this month by Shadow Assistant Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Tony Pasin MP.

Mr Pasin said the Albanese Labor Government had allowed the national road network to fall into disrepair with billions of dollars in funding cuts and delays since coming to Government.

“Australia’s 880,000 kms of road network underpins almost every aspect of our lives. From getting to and from work and school to getting produce off the farm and off to market, a good road network underpins the efficient and safe movement of people and goods and it’s critical to competing in a global market,” said Mr Pasin said.

“Motorists take responsibility for ensuring their vehicle is roadworthy and pay taxes and charges for the privilege to use our road network. In turn, a core responsibility of Government is to ensure the road network is up to standard. It’s very clear from the condition of roads across the country that the Albanese Labor Government is not living up to its end of the bargain,” Mr Pasin said.

Within the first two years of the Albanese Labor Government, $27.9 billion worth of infrastructure projects have been cancelled, cut and delayed.

Member for Wannon, Dan Tehan, said roads throughout Wannon aren’t receiving the maintenance and upgrades they need, and the impacts of Federal Government funding cuts were being felt by road users and residents firsthand.

“As someone who lives and works in Wannon, I know first-hand how terrible some parts of the road network have become. I’m calling on the residents of Wannon to help shine a light on the appalling condition of our roads by taking part in this national survey. Let’s send the Albanese Labor Government a message to fix our roads,” he said.

Tehan encouraged residents to submit their views through the survey which is available at https://www.research.net/r/2HRHBV9

The survey will be open until 5pm, August 30 2024.
