McVeigh: Warrego Highway upgrade is urgent

URGENT upgrades to a notorious Warrego Highway intersection where a mother and daughter suffered fatal injuries in a traffic crash last month have been taken to the deputy prime minister.

Groom MP John McVeigh has met with nearby residents and regular users of Brimblecombe Rd near Kingsthorpe to hear safety concerns, and lobby for upgrades.

Against the backdrop of trucks on the Warrego Highway, Dr McVeigh this week said Brimblecombe Rd needed an upgrade "as these locals are stressing with me".

Residents called for - at a minimum - a sign highlighting turning trucks from the recently-upgraded highway into the arterial Brimblecombe Rd.
