Constituency questions – Sunbury Road Upgrades

Mr J. BULL (Sunbury) (11:52:31) — (14 019) My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. Minister, what are the construction and design time lines for the $5.4 million safety upgrade of Sunbury Road between the Tullamarine Freeway and Oaklands Road? Last week I was thrilled to announce that as part of the upgrade the road would be widened. This is a vital upgrade and incredibly important for a growing community. There were 13 crashes recorded along this section of road in a five-year period to 2014, which includes one head-on crash resulting in a fatality, seven crashes involving serious injuries and five other crashes causing injury. I look forward to this upgrade, and I thank the minister for his commitment to Sunbury and this important project.
