Inverleigh Level Crossing

Mr GRIMLEY (Western Victoria) (11:45): My constituency question is to the minister representing the Minister for Transport Infrastructure. In September this year a serious accident occurred when a train and car collided at the Inverleigh level crossing. The Fuller Road level crossing has no boom gates, lights or bells; the only safety measure in place is a stop sign. According to locals this crossing should have been considered for upgrading by the state government five years ago. The Terrier Road action committee stated at the time that locals were desperate for upgrades but their calls for help were unanswered. Approximately 16 trains travel through the Fuller Road crossing daily, and it has been reported that when there is poor weather, such as fog, a stop sign just does not work. My question is: can the minister explain why this request for a safe level crossing has been ignored, and can the minister advise when the Fuller Road crossing will have additional safety measures implemented to ensure the safety of road users?
