Liberal candidate for Lyons, Susie Bower has welcomed new funding from the Morrison Government to improve road safety in Sheffield.
Ms Bower said funding committed to the Kentish municipality was part of the Morrison Liberal Government’s 2021–22 Black Spot Program.
“As a candidate for Lyons I welcome the Government’s funding to improve road safety in Sheffield. “Kentish Council will receive $325,000 from the Morrison Government to install a roundabout on Main and High Streets in Sheffield.
“This intersection 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.
