Hills MP Jamie Briggs has urged the State Government to seek Federal Black Spot funding to make the intersection at the start of the freeway safer in the wake of Monday’s fatal accident.
The Federal Assistant Infrastructure Minister issued the invitation to State Road Safety Minister Tony Piccolo on ABC Radio yesterday, saying the collision was the third fatality involving a runaway truck in the area in recent years and the second at the intersection this year and “there’s obviously a major problem here”.
“If there is a solution that the State Government can identify … I’d be happy to sit down and talk with Tony Piccolo and (Transport Minister) Stephen Mullighan about putting that in place,” he said.
Mr Briggs said the Government would be prepared to work through costings for any identified measures with the SA Ministers.
