Have say: People can report regional road issues on a Victorian Opposition website launched ahead of the state election.
The Fix Our Roads website was launched last year to allow Victorians to report potholes and road issues in their area.
One user, posting under the name ‘‘Kaye K’’ reported problems with school crossings on Shepparton’s Archer St and Balaclava Rd.
The user said the Archer St crossing was ‘‘dangerous and hard to see’’.
‘‘It needs a crossing light somewhere near between Benalla Rd and Wilmot Rd,’’ the user said.
‘‘People struggle to cross safely.’’
The user said the Balaclava Rd crossing was dangerous.
‘‘(There are) trucks frequently going up the road and struggle to stop,’’ the user said.
‘‘Outrageous that there aren’t lights on that crossing.
‘‘Near misses have occurred with the crossing supervisor.’’
Victorian Opposition roads spokesman Luke Donnellan said the website was established to identify ‘‘where there are issues around Victoria, around road funding, potholes and the like’’.
‘‘It’s made it a lot easier for us to identify those problem areas,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s largely focused on potholes and maintenance.
‘‘But in terms of funding for school crossings, it ran out 18 month ago and it’s only now the government has reinstated it.’’
The Victorian Opposition has pledged $1
‘‘The commit of the billion dollars is a capital focus,’’ Mr Donnellan said.
