Update on Williamstown roadworks

Published on 05 June 2024

The condition of our regional roads has a huge impact on all of us, even more so when one you use frequently is in a state of disrepair.

I know the condition of Lyndoch Valley Road and Queen Street in Williamstown has frustrated people for some time, and that’s why I’ve continued to push for improvements.

Earlier this year the then Minister for Regional Roads confirmed to me that a section of road between Williamstown CFS and Williamstown Primary School was scheduled to receive significant pavement patching.

It was, at the very least, a start to address the condition of the road and to fix significant potholes – even though the road requires complete resurfacing works in the long term.

But since the contractors have packed up their gear, locals have expressed dissatisfaction and concern with the current result - and having gone to check it out for myself I can understand why.

So I wanted to let you know that I’ve written to the Minister about all of the concerns and asked him to investigate. We need a long-term plan to fix Lyndoch Road and the Main Street and that’s what I’ll keep pushing for.

With the State Budget handed down tomorrow, I’ve also been urging the government to invest more into our regional roads, because they need to be better and safer right across the board.

Stay in touch with me.
