NRMA poses aggravating question on region's roads

WHICH local roads make you see red?

The National Roads and Motorists’ Association is launching its fourth Seeing Red on Roads campaign, asking motorists in South East  NSW to vote for the roads they find most frustrating.

In the wake of Federal Budget announcements on road funding, the NRMA is asking all motorists to voice their opinion by voting for the local roads that aggravate them the most.

Motorists are invited to pinpoint the road, roundabout or intersection they find most aggravating, by using an interactive map that can be found at mynrma.com.au/redflag.

In the four years since the campaign launched in 2011, over 35,000 people have voted for their worst local road.

In 2013, motorists throughout the region voted for Kings, Princes and Monaro Highways as the worst roads in the region.

Local motorists said the biggest issues were congestion, poor road surface, not enough lanes and narrow lanes.

NRMA local director Alan Evans said while the NRMA was pleased with the success of its Seeing Red on Roads campaign, still a lot of work remained to be done.

 “Following the launch of the first Seeing Red on Roads campaign four years ago, we have seen commitments from all levels of government towards fixing some of the most dangerous roads in NSW,” Mr Evans said.

“The fact that the NSW Government committed funding to the worst roads identified by motorists in last year’s Seeing Red on Roads shows that the local community can get results if we get involved.

“We need as many motorists from the region getting involved as possible, to ensure south-east NSW gets better, safer roads.”

Voting will remain open until August 31.
