My question is to the Roads Minister.
It relates to the 2014 comments to the Euroa Gazette of her predecessor in the portfolio, Mr Donnellan, that he was “very supportive of lowering the speed limit at the Avenel exit on the Hume” Freeway, and would take this up with VicRoads. This unusually designed and dangerous intersection has been the site of many accidents and near-accidents. This risk is also growing given the intersection is increasingly busy, not least because Avenel’s population has tripled since 1971, and most local residents now live on the eastern side of the freeway and therefore need to cross the road on a daily basis. I therefore ask the Minister: in practical terms, what has the Labor Party done (and/or will it do in the future) to act on Mr Donnellan’s concerns from back in 2014?
