Driv­ers vent on fury road

Geelong Advertiser - - YOUR SAY -

A KEY sec­tion of road around In­ver­leigh, con­nect­ing Gee­long and the state’s west, is in a ter­ri­ble state of dis­re­pair, prompt­ing au­thor­i­ties to drop the speed limit from 100km/h to main­tain safety.

Vi­sion zero. Not with a ma­jor state and in­ter­state high­way in this dis­grace­ful state. And many trucks and cars ig­nore 80km/h signs any­way. The min­is­ter should hang his head in em­bar­rass­ment. John Bolitho

Yep, the An­drews Govern­ment’s an­swer to fix­ing coun­try roads — lower the speed limit, bang in some speed cam­eras and go for the low­est ten­der when it comes to re­pairs or du- pli­cat­ing roads. That’s go­ing to get you some votes. Russell Lymer

Here’s an idea — get it fixed. Sheree Lam­prell

What bloody road isn’t in Gee­long? All the roads are crap. The stupid bloody Christ­mas tree is more of a con­cern and the over-bud­get spend­ing on it. Ratepay­ers foot the ex­cess. Lyn War­ren

Low­er­ing the speed is a lazy op- tion. We need it fixed and an over­tak­ing lane in that area too. Robyn Kerdel

The road is in ter­ri­ble con­di­tion all the way to Hamil­ton. Daniel An­drews and his govern­ment are a joke when it comes to keeping Vic­to­ri­ans safe on coun­try roads. Michael Pat­ter­son

Vic­to­rian high­way in the far west has a speed limit of 60km/h for two or three kilo­me­tres. Sign says “rough sur­face”. Bloody ne­glected for too long. Mel­bourne-cen­tric. John Feery

Mil­lions for level cross­ings in Mel- bourne and noth­ing for roads in Gee­long and south­west Vic­to­ria. Doug Gil­ham

All they do is patch it, then it rains, and it all crum­bles. I’ve watched this process for the past 17 years. Lisa Luketic

The Hamil­ton High­way needs the same fo­cus and road­work as what was com­mit­ted to the Princes High­way be­tween Gee­long and Co­lac. It’s too busy to just have patch work done. Jozef Hor­vat

Bac­chus Marsh Rd is an­other shock­ing road to drive along too. Eliana Virg­ona
