Bruce Highway Needs Work ASAP!

Bruce Highway Roadworks October 2010





















As I drove from Cooktown to Brisbane and back in October / November I found that stretches of the Bruce Highway are more like a track than a major highway. 

It sure doesn't seem suitable for the heavy trucks that travel to meet deadlines.  I experienced many of the Truckee's traveling over the speed limit and frequently tail gating.  Gaps, potholes, eroded edges in places make driving a risky business.

From figures released in parliament the road toll for 2000 to 2008 on the sections being upgraded were 56 dead and 282 people admitted to hospital.  These details of the road casualties along the blackest of black spots make you wonder if the federal and state governments are doing everything they can to fast-track construction
