Why can’t some­one do some­thing for the Bruce High­way

Big Rigs - - HOT TOPICS ONLINE -

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.
