I welcome the recent announcement by Assistant Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Jamie Briggs and Federal Member for Longman Wyatt Roy that safety upgrades on the D’Aguilar Highway will start next year. I am also very pleased to see that the upgrades to the Gamgee Road and Canando Street intersections have been identified for inclusion in this project.
I personally went to Canberra and met with the previous Government to highlight the importance and urgency for these works but got nothing. Yet within weeks of being elected, the Coalition has come through with this multi-million dollar announcement. Finally we have a government in Canberra that listens to local concerns and needs.
