BOB Cummins was one of many who made the trip to yesterday’s community cabinet meeting.
While he wasn’t heard on the floor inside, he sent a message out the front.
He’s campaigning for an upgrade to the deadly Bolivia Hill stretch of the New England Highway.
He says the NSW government is only concerned about the coastal roads.
“Forget about anything else, it is about public safety,” he told The Leader after the meeting.
“This is a shocking piece of highway and if the government is truly interested in anywhere else than the Pacific Highway, then they will do something.”
Mr Cummins said the highway wasn’t a priority for governments but a multi-lane bypass would help to fix the problem.
He took on the cause after his neighbour lost her grandson in an accident on the stretch of highway.
“Mike Gallacher gave me the bum’s rush and so did the premier,” Mr Cummins said.
“But that Marshall fellow was excellent ... and I am going see him in the next day or two and follow this up.”
