Motorists can flag our worst roads

THE NRMA is giving Coffs Coast motorists a chance to again vent their frustration over the state's worst roads.

The peak motoring body has called on NSW residents to take part in its survey and red flag the worst sections of bitumen across the state.

Last year the Pacific Highway between Coffs Harbour and Macksville was voted the worst section of road in NSW.

Yet after widespread exposure of traffic issues in the metropolitan media at the weekend, the survey is sure to this year include large numbers of votes from Sydney-based motorists.

So here is your chance to have the O'Farrell Government take note of country roads and the state of the Pacific Highway.

NRMA President Wendy Machin said the survey identified the Pacific and Princes Highways as NSW's worst roads.

"Six months later the NSW and Australian governments committed record levels of funding into these roads with over a billion dollars committed to the Pacific and $80 million to the Princes Highway," Ms Machin said.                        

"The fact that the government committed funding to the worst roads in our survey shows that they will respond to people power."
