As the State representative for Glass House, the electorate which encompasses the D’Aguilar Highway, I write to congratulate you for getting behind the community’s fight to see the D’Aguilar Highway upgraded. I have been fighting this alongside the community since becoming the Member for Glass House and I have been continually disappointed at the Government’s lack of commitment to fund desperately needed upgrades. Two petitions to the Government and many letters and speeches pleading for assistance have been ignored. We have lost too many lives unnecessarily on this road –what more will it take for changes to be made? The community and your paper have my full support in your ‘Road to Repair’ campaign to see the D’Aguilar Highway made safer for the community.
