 In last weeks paper, The Mail reported on the destroyed safety barrier at the Badger Creek Road and Marroondah Highway intersection. When contacted for the story, VicRoads stated that the barrier would be repaired by early December but it is very pleasing to report that the work has already been done and the barriers are now fully intact. It seems that in this case the interests of Healesville residents have aligned with the interests of VicRoads at precisely the same time. However it is only fair to recognise that VicRoads have responded to community concerns on this issue and perhaps may now be open to re-visit the bigger picture of how to make this dangerous corner safer for all road and crossing users?
