Improving the access

Mr Chester said, "I secured $2 million from the federal government to improve safety at the Hazel Road intersection and better pedestrian access almost two years ago and still no work has happened. The community has been advocating for improved access along the Princes Highway for 20 years and the State Government continues to ignore the issue."
