Govt taking action on road safety - Genter

From Morning Report, 8:45 am on 29 June 2018

Earlier, we spoke to a former Mayor who wondered if the Government has its transport priorities right, especially in light of this week's tragic crash near Waverley. Speaking yesterday during a transport announcement at the Kiwirail yard in Onehunga, associate transport minister Julie Anne Genter gave her assurance that the government was taking action on road safety. She also said the NZTA is already identifying the areas where roads are the least safe, such the stretch of road where Wednesday's tragedy in Taranaki occured, and figuring out how the greatest improvements can be made in the shortest period of time.
