Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on

GRAIN TRANSPORT — ROADS

626. Hon COLIN TINCKNELL to the minister representing the Minister for Transport:

I make note that this question was asked before the disaster last weekend.

(1) Does the state government believe that the grain transport routes are currently sufficient to handle an expected record grain harvest year?

(2) If not, what infrastructure is required to cater for the task, in order to reduce related road accidents, potential fatalities and further damage to current road transport routes?

Hon STEPHEN DAWSON replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question. The following information has been provided to me by the Minister for Transport.

(1)–(2) The minister would always like to invest more in roads and that is why the government has a record road spending program.
