Boost to Road Safety in St Helens welcomed


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

Ms Bower said funding committed to the Break O’Day municipality was part of the Morrison Liberal Government’s 2021–22 Black Spot Program.

“I welcome the Government’s commitment to improve road safety in St Helens,” Ms Bower said.

“Break O’Day Council will receive $65,000 from the Morrison Government to install a mini-roundabout on Quail and Medea Streets in St Helens.

“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 the Morrison Government’s investment to fix black spots will help to reduce 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.
