18 MARCH 2020 – Mr ONDARCHIE – Adjournment
My adjournment tonight is for the Minister for Transport Infrastructure in the other place, and it concerns Childs Road in my electorate of Northern Metropolitan Region. Minister, the 2018 works on Dalton Road in Thomastown and Epping left many residents and motorists angry with the raised speed humps at the intersections with traffic lights. You may remember that recently I asked you in a constituency question if the government will be installing these raised intersections or speed humps on Childs Road in Epping and Mill Park. I did not get a conclusive answer. Residents were left shaking their heads that these speed humps may be considered by the Labor government for Childs Road, and they feel like they are being used as guinea pigs by the government and clearly taken for granted by Labor.
I want to thank local community advocate Lakhwinder Singh Dhillon, who has shown real leadership. Mr Dhillon has gone door to door with a petition calling on the government for no raised intersections on Childs Road, and today it was my honour to table that petition with 151 names on his behalf. Minister, in response to the petition collected by local advocate Lakhwinder Singh Dhillon, the action I seek is that you rule out any raised intersection or speed humps on any of the new or current intersections on Childs Road.
