$10m State funds for the Highway is a good start: Gary Smith of TeenSafe

Gary Smith of TeenSafe Moruya and the spokesperson for the Fix The Bloody Highway this week welcomed the announcement by South Coast MP Shelley Hancock that the NSW State Governement were going to announce $10 million in funding for northern Princes Highway projects during next Tuesday's budget handdown.

Gary told The Beagle "$10 million is wonderful however we cant stop at that". "It is the tip of the iceberg and we need to keep campaigning for more money and for planning. "In the first instance we need overtaking lanes and barriers" "I look forward to hearing of the outcome of the Bega Councils motion they are putting forward to the National General Assembly (NGA) of Local Government to be held in Canberra next week asking that the Princes Highway be recognised as a road of National importance". "I also look forward to hearing what funding Andrew Constance has been able to secure from the NSW Budget to be handed down next Tuesday. "Councillor Mayne of the Eurobodalla Council and also the Council's SEATS representative is keen to bring together representatives from all levels to discuss the short and long term plans for the highway inclusive of bypasses and pay respect to the original motion by Councillor Constable requesting the same that was disappointingly not enacted on by Council staff." "This is an urgent matter and one that needs to have leaders to keep the momentum going so that finally we can have the highway identified as being in poor repair and in need of long term commitments that will bring safety and growth."
