The placement of Wire Roper Barriers in the South Eastern Metropolitan Region is another example of where common sense hasn’t been used by the Andrews Labor Government.
Some of the specific concerns about some of the latest installations include:
- Impeding access and manoeuvrability for emergency services;
- Compromising motorcycle safety if a rider connects with the barrier;
- Wire Rope Barriers installed too close to the side of the road that inhibit drivers pulling over safely due to a flat tire or a breakdown; and
- Considerable vegetation growth under the barrier rope which poses a significant fire risk and maintenance issues.
A Liberal Nationals Government will suspend Daniel Andrews’ botched rollout of Wire Rope Barriers and undertake a review of the process.
The review will include consultation with key stakeholders such as the CFA and RACV to determine a common sense approach to the placement and extent of future Wire Rope Barriers implementation.
