Have your say on road conditions

Member for Northern Victoria Wendy Lovell is urging people to have their say about the condition of local roads in an online VicRoads survey.

Greater Shepparton and Moira residents can still take part in a VicRoads online conversation on how to improve the road networks in our local community and wider state.

VicRoads’ Country Roads project includes talking to local communities about how it can better plan, build, manage and maintain the almost 20000 kilometres of country arterial roads in Victoria.

Member for Northern Victoria Wendy said she was aware that many people were concerned about road conditions in the region.

‘‘There is a lot of conversation in the local community about the state of roads within the district and across Victoria, and I strongly encourage anyone who has anything they feel should be said to take part in the discussion that VicRoads is currently having,’’ Ms Lovell said.

She said a community forum held in Shepparton in May highlighted the start of the Shepparton Bypass project, intersection and road signage improvements, and calls for passing bays and sealed shoulders were common issues.

“Some of the issues already being discussed online include quality of road works, such as the Midland Highway works currently being undertaken, as well as road safety concerns and calls for the bypass project to be accelerated,” Ms Lovell said.

The online discussion forum will be open for comment until August 13.
