6 June 2019 : Mr Walsh
I want to raise the concerns of all those people who are constantly contacting me and my office about the dangerous condition of the Echuca-Mitiamo Road west of Kotta. The C334 is a major east-west route in my electorate with a lot of truck traffic particularly from the south-east of South Australia through to New South Wales and to Sydney. The rubbish contract from Greater Bendigo City Council has now been awarded to Patho Landfill so all those rubbish trucks are using that particular road. It is a school bus route as well. There is narrow bitumen with up to a 6-inch drop-off on the edge of the bitumen. It is extremely dangerous. People are very concerned that at some stage a B-double will drop a wheel off get a wobble up and have a car accident and someone will be killed. So I raise the concerns about that road.
