Labor Upper House Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, last week joined Labor candidate for Eildon, Sally Brennan and Murrindindi Shire in Yea to announce more than $600,000 in works could get under way if Labor is re-elected.
The projects announced include:
- Ghin Ghin: Road Safety Improvement which will include installing safety barriers on the existing bridges/major culverts, sealing one road entry and reconstruction of a 700m section of failed road pavement.
- Jorgensen Parade, Pheasant Creek: Heavy Vehicle Access Improvement which will see an extension of the sealed section and upgrading the existing pavement to allow for higher use and regular steel delivery to modular manufacture KLMS.
- High Street, Yea: Traffic Management Review to address parking impacts and traffic circulation on High Street Yea. It is a busy strip shopping commercial district that caters for high volume tourist traffic both winter and summers seasons.
“These are great projects identified by Murrindindi Shire that will not only improve safety on local roads but will also examine how to make High St safer for locals and tourists,” Symes said.
“We know how important road safety is to country Victorians and that is why Labor is investing in local projects identified by the Shire to make our roads safer.
