Truckie's opinion: Hume Hwy is not good

THE Hume Highway and its lack of rest stops riled up Big Rigs Facebook follower Junior McKenna.

"No way is there enough rest areas or they are big enough," he wrote.

"Go up or down the pacific, always overcrowded. Always full. I think some blokes go off road from travelling between rest areas trying to find a place to lie down.

"And don't forget about the 1hr 15min boring stretch now between Kempsey, and Nabiac.

"New section of highway, think they would have common sense and build one somewhere between there. Or Grafton to Wardell, one in between."
