On wrong track

TRANSPORT Minister Dean Nalder was reported as saying the Government was fully committed to Roe 8 to get trucks off local roads.

How would he feel if trucks rumbled past his house 15 hours a day, seven days a week?

He and his Government are not taking the benefits of rail seriously.

Yes, get trucks off local roads but truckies play their part getting freight into areas where rail cannot go.

But do not rip up wildlife reserves to build more roads and thereby put more traffic on the roads.
