Why can’t someone do something for the Bruce Highway
CALLS for an added lane on the Bruce Highway struck a nerve with many drivers who have to deal with its current condition.
The lack of rest areas was a major point of dissatisfaction.
Breto G: Let’s be realistic, start with overtaking lanes in the section where’s little chance of overtaking for endless kilometres, narrow bridges.
Most of all, need decent rest areas, that’s for all travellers, campervans, caravans, heavy vehicle, for overnight stays.
People need to learn more about patience, drive to your abilities and pull over, let traffic past safely.
Stop this speeding up in overtaking lanes and passing opportunities when all vehicles have mirrors it’s obvious.
It’s not that hard to work out they are little quicker than they are.
It may take a heavy vehicle five kilometres to get away in front of you after overtaking.
Trevor V: If they stop wasting money on resurfacing and patching things here there and everywhere we may have money for more lanes.
Karl N: Just travelled up that way from Victoria, 4240 km, and the only trouble I had?
You guessed it, the Bruce Highway.
And while I’m at it, where the hell is anyone supposed to pull up for a rest?
Where they could build a new highway to replace the goat track and maybe save lives.
