Glimmer of hope in campaign for Hillsborough Road upgrade
13th June 2017
It's just over 12 months since young Jade Frith was killed while trying to cross a busy section of Hillsborough Road. During Question Time in parliament recently, I asked the Minister how much longer we have to wait for the long-planned upgrade of Hillsborough Road.
That upgrade needs to heppen not just in the place where Jade was hit, but at other troublespots like the intersection with Crockett Street. In some heartening news, Roads Minister Belinda Pavey indicated that we could see some money allocated in next month's State Budget. Not counting chickens yet, but it looks like we're getting closer to a positive result.
