Bernadette Mills started this petition to Vic roads
Roadside vegetation has grown past the white posts, to bitumen in places; inside corners are now blind, impeding vision of traffic ahead, including cyclists.

Vic Roads need to, as a matter of urgency remove all roadside vegetation, on all inside corners through these S bends and follow up with annual spraying to prevent regrowth of the declared environmental weed - Coastal Wattle.

I started this petition, because…
My name is Bernie Mills, I am fifth generation Cape Bridgewater grazier and I have watched this invasive, declared environmental weed Coastal Wattle invade our roadsides and surrounding coastal areas for decades. I have been raising my concerns about this issue for many years with the same response - "We have no money for this roadside maintenance." I was told last week by Vic Roads that work will not be conducted this financial year 2018/2019 and it has not been budgeted for in 2019/2020! When I asked what we as daily road users were meant to do about this dangerous stretch of road, the reply given to me was - "You drive to the conditions of the road." I have also been told by Vic Roads that they will not reduce the speed limit through these S bends, as the 'Pavement' is in good condition.
