A Liberal Government will install signalling, boom barriers and a designated pedestrian crossing at a dangerous Tatura railway crossing to improve safety for locals and motorists.
An elected Liberal Government will upgrade the level crossing on Dhurringile Road by installing flashing lights and boom barriers as well as a guarded pedestrian crossing with a pledge of $650,000 to carry out the project.
The Dhurringile Road rail crossing is currently controlled by stop signs only and Labor and current Member Suzanna Sheed have continuously ignored calls by local residents for an upgrade.
Shadow Minister for Public Transport, David Davis said, “Labor has been in power for 15 of the last 19 years and has neglected Tatura and the Goulburn Valley. This crossing will be safer under an elected Liberal Nationals Government.
Dhurringile Road is a major thoroughfare for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians and the Liberal Nationals commitment to improve safety for local residents is in stark contrast to the Andrews Labor Government, whose recent roads and rail funding announcement failed to see one dollar spent in the Shepparton electorate.
Liberal Candidate for Shepparton, Cheryl Hammer said, “Nearby residents to this railway crossing have called for better safety measures for many years after witnessing multiple near misses and some accidents. I am pleased to have been able to secure this commitment for these safety upgrades which will potentially save lives.”
The upgrade to the Dhurringile Road railway crossing will improve safety for both pedestrians and motorists crossing the railway line and reinforces that Matthew Guy and the Liberal will govern for all Victorians.
