Semi Trailer Trucks on Kinglake-Heidelberg Road have been an issue for many years, for locals and tourists alike. It’s time we got barriers or height restrictions put in place to prevent this accident waiting to happen.

They physically cannot fit around the blind corners, it can and has caused many cars to be run right off the edge, to be pushed into and up the embankment or to be run over by the trailer of these trucks which are too long and too wide to fit on this narrow and windy road. Then there’s the times where buses and cars alike have had to reverse a very long way due to a Semi taking up more then half of the road. 

There are signs that are advisory only but many truck drivers completely ignore them or miss the signs altogether and by that stage, it is impossible for them to turn around. That’s why a barrier or height restriction is very important for all drivers safety. 

There are other ways to get up to Kinglake and those roads are much more suitable for large heavy vehicles. So I write to you, Helen Haines, local MP for Indi and Victoria Roads, it’s time Semi trailers were made illegal on Kinglake-Heidelberg Road.
