Delivering improvements

More people are moving to Latrobe City or utilising the Princes Highway to visit key attractions in Gippsland. Community members are encouraged to use Snap Send Solve to report road issues. Snap Send Solve is available for free from the App Store and Google Play.

Mayor of Latrobe City, Councillor Kellie O'Callaghan was pleased works would begin on these priority intersections. "Council would like to thank the federal government for their investment in the Princes Highway Corridor and the state government for managing these upgrades through Regional Roads Victoria."

Report local road concerns

Ms O'Callaghan also said, "Council is also proud to deliver our own improvements at Marshalls Road and Traralgon-Maffra Road. Improving safety and reducing congestion at our key local intersections is a priority and these works are a step in the right direction."

"Snap Send Solve is a fantastic way for our community to report local road concerns. Simply take a picture when it is safe to do so and lodge a request, Snap Send Solve will send it to council or Regional Roads Victoria depending on the location. This saves our community members time and ensures their request is handled by the appropriate authority," concluded Cr. O'Callaghan.
