  1. If people are to look at VicRoads plans for the Ballarat turn off, they will see that the intersection is going to be changed.

    Re-alignment is one thing, but unfortunately it’s driver behavior that is largely contributing to accidents. I’ve cycled on the stretch of road between Birregurra and Skenes Creek at least a dozen times and I’ve driven it at least 100 times and the impatience, inattention and excessive speed of some drivers beggars belief. Solid double lines means nothing to some drivers, especially around Barramunga. I know police resources are stretched, but there needs to be a clear message sent to some drivers who seem incapable of driving to the conditions and restrictions.

  3. I have nearly been killed turning right from the Colac-Ballarat Road turnoff as soon as there are no vehicles coming and you turn there is always someone up you behind doing 100KM and while I have to then floor it they have to then brake and nearly crash into the back of me and then there is abuse you get from people who unknowingly think that you deliberately pulled out in front of them, it has gotten much worse since they removed the 80km zone and made it 100km and also with the increase in traffic over the years and I can tell you it will be even worse when they build the new road because we will then have 2 lanes of traffic to cross and this will cause more traffic to bank up as the section of road between the 2 lanes only allows one car to wait
