Rikki’s Road Rage

Australian Conservatives Release

The Conservative Party’s Senate candidate for South Australia Rikki Lambert writes:

Wherever I go across country SA I see neglected roads.

Not enough overtaking lanes between Keith and Naracoorte, or between Port Lincoln and Whyalla despite a looming surge in road freight.

No dual carriageway between Port Augusta and Port Wakefield nor Murray Bridge to the Victorian border.

Speed limits falling, for instance on the Sturt Highway at Nuriootpa due to safety concerns.

Victor Harbor Road duplication kicked into the long grass.

Yet interstate dual carriageways abound.

Our farmers and producers grow food, fibre, jobs and exports for our city cousins, yet we are milked as cash cows and our roads become more dangerous.

South Australia gets ripped off nationally in road funding allocation – and country South Australians even more so.

Local members may champion road improvements but country voters must amplify their voice with their Senate vote – in the states’ house, designed to ensure equality between all states.

Vote “1” Australian Conservatives in the Senate.
