I agree with Rod Vaughan's analysis that fixing our killer highways is years overdue.
Since 2013, the number of people dying on our roads every year has increased by nearly 50 per cent. That's why when our Government came to office, we knew we couldn't sit back and do nothing after years of neglect. We made safety our top transport priority and we're investing $4.3 billion into safety infrastructure and programmes to bring down the number of deaths on our roads. This is a 37 per cent increase compared to the previous government – which translates to $1.2 billion
