I was delighted to be with Matthew Guy MP and David Hodgett MP recently when we announced our plan to ‘Get Victoria Moving’ and to ease Melbourne’s biggest road congestion by removing notorious bottleneck intersections.
We have announced the removal of 55 of the most dangerous and congested intersections in Victoria. So far we have announced 35 of them but need your help to decide which other intersections will be removed.
This will be the biggest congestion-busting project in Victoria’s history.
- Red Light Removal
Matthew Guy and the Liberal Nationals team will remove traffic lights and roundabouts from 55 busy and congested intersections using grade-separations, improving the flow of traffic for all Victorians.
- Faster Commute
Victoria’s population is growing by 100,000 people every year. Over 2.5 million cars are travelling through major intersections in afternoon peak. That is 1600 cars a minute! These intersections are slowing Victorians down and their removal will ensure the reduction in travel time for everyone.
- Safer Roads
According to VicRoads data and case studies, the intersections that a Liberal Nationals Government will remove currently have high numbers of crashes and injuries. The removal of these intersections will create a safer environment for pedestrians and motorists.
Only a Coalition Government will ease congestion and Get Victoria Moving.
