Federal support for Tuross Head highway Intersection

In a video release today Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis, has informed the residents of Tuross Head that she has been able to secure additional funding to provide a better solution to the notorious Hector McWilliam Drive/Princes Highway intersection that has seen innumerable collisions and close calls. For some time the Tuross Head Progress Association lobbied Council's Traffic Committee but under the chair of Neil Burnside they were fobbed off saying the intersection complied with standards and nothing would be done and it was down to driver behavior. Councillor Anthony Mayne, the new Traffic Committee chair however took the appeals of the Tuross residents and Progress Association seriously and called for an on-site meeting of all the authorities and tiers of government to critically assess the situation. It was accepted that the intersection did indeed present a danger to drivers and had done so for many years. The RMS agreed that works could be done to ameliorate the issues identified and as a result they have carried out intersection work including clearing of vegetation and improved signage. Other works were identified that would further improve the intersection however those works required funding that neither the RMS or Council would/could provide. Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis was represented at the on-site meeting and heard back that there was an opportunity to direct Federal funding earmarked for such road network black spots. Today Ann Sudmalis announced to the Tuross Head community that she has secured more funding for the intersection and now hopes to see that funding directed to a purpose built result that will make the intersection safer.
