Ms SULEYMAN (St Albans) (11:40:29): (733) My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads. Can the minister provide information on funding opportunities for safety measures along Ballarat Road in Sunshine, in particular at the intersections of Perth Avenue, Adelaide Street, Chatsworth Avenue and Reid Street. I have received many letters and met with many locals, who have expressed their concerns about this ongoing issue. There is no pedestrian access or traffic signalling at these particular intersections on Ballarat Road for locals to cross safely. This part of Ballarat Road is very busy, with a local school, a shopping precinct on Perth Avenue, the Federation retirement village and a mosque. In recent weeks we have unfortunately seen a fatality at this location. Safety upgrades and the installation of traffic signalling is long overdue and needs to be implemented. So therefore I ask the minister to look at the opportunities of funding safety measures along Ballarat Road in Sunshine.
