Adjournment – FORSTER ROAD, MOUNT WAVERLEY, SHARED-USE PATH

My adjournment matter is for the Minister for Roads and Minister for Road Safety and the TAC, and the action I seek is for the minister to visit my electorate of Mount Waverley to see the condition of our roads and view the progress of the Forster Road shared-use path. I was delighted to announce in April that works have started on the Andrews Labor government’s $2.6 million Forster Road project. We are delivering a brand-new shared-use path for pedestrians and cyclists along Forster Road as well as new pedestrian lights near Wilga Street to help boost road safety. My community, particularly those who are keen cyclists, will soon have a safer and easier way to travel through Mount Waverley. This is a key section of the Clayton to Syndal strategic cycling corridor, and I am proud to see our government deliver this project as part of our $100 million Safer Cyclists and Pedestrians Fund. There is always more to do in road safety, and I know my community would appreciate a visit from the Minister for Roads, so I ask the minister to visit Mount Waverley and the Forster Road project to discuss options to improve other important roads and intersections in my electorate, and I thank the minister for her support.
