Boost to Road Safety in Richmond welcomed


Liberal candidate for Lyons, Susie Bower has welcomed new funding from the Morrison Government to improve road safety in Richmond.

Ms Bower said funding committed to the Clarence municipality to improve safety on Brinktop Rd was part of the Morrison Liberal Government’s 2021–22 Black Spot Program. “As a candidate for Lyons I welcome the Government’s commitment to improve road safety and fix black spots,” Ms Bower said.

“Clarence City Council will receive $260,000 from the Morrison Government to increase curve radius and road widening at Brinktop Road, near Richmond.

“This section of road has been identified as a dangerous crash site, and funding will deliver vital road safety improvements to provide a safer driving experience for all road users.

“I want all Tasmanian road users to get home safely to their families, and investing to improve road infrastructure will mitigate against serious accidents.” “This is a great example of Government listening to the community and helping to find solutions. I encourage all members of the community to keep bringing forward ideas for improvements to local infrastructure and if you’ve got ideas and suggestions, please get in touch with me so I can advocate for the solutions on your behalf,” Ms Bower said.
