Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra and South Coast Gareth Ward MP has today welcomed a massive reduction in local road fatalities over the past twelve months.
Mr Ward said that he was very pleased that local motorists have heeded the road safety message from the NSW Government.
Key statistics show:
“One of the reasons I stood for Parliament was to fix our Princes Highway,” Mr Ward said.
“I’m very proud of the record amounts of roads funding which has been secured from the NSW Government to upgrade our Princes Highway at Gerringong, the Berry bypass, Berry to Bomaderry and the Albion Park Rail bypass.
“We are making these key investments to ultimately build a better and safer Princes Highway to help save lives.
“These reductions are a step in the right direction but there is still more work to be done to improve road safety as we work towards our future goal of zero fatalities,” Mr Ward concluded.
