Median strip blasted

FEDERAL Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss has blasted a move by the Federal Government to paint a median strip along 45 kilometres of the Bruce Highway from Cooroy to Gympie.

“There will be more tailgating by heavy vehicles, more road rage and more law breaking,” he said.

“If the only opportunity that people will have to overtake slower vehicles along the Highway will be at overtaking lanes, motorists frustration levels will rise. Overtaking should not be prohibited where it is safe, especially if there are no more passing lanes to be provided.”

Mr Truss welcomed safety measures but didn’t agree with the median strip.
