Liberals to review Wire Rope Barrier Program

Ripon MP Louise Staley has welcomed news that a Liberal Government will suspend Daniel Andrews’ botched rollout of wire rope barriers and undertake a review of the process.  


The Victorian Liberal Party acknowledges that wire rope barriers can prevent some serious accidents if installed correctly. However, the process has been rushed and mishandled under the Andrews Government.


We are concerned that the latest round of wire rope barriers are being installed in the wrong places and without proper planning and making some roads more dangerous instead of safer. 


Some of the specific concerns about the latest installations include:

  • Impeding access and maneuverability for emergency services;
  • Compromising motorcycle safety if a rider connects with the barrier;
  • Wire Roper Barriers installed too close to the side of the road that inhibits drivers pulling over safely due to a flat tire or a breakdown; and
  • Considerable vegetation growth under the barrier rope which pose a significant fire risk and maintenance issues.
