The big question: Giles | POLL

We asked the people above:  Should the elected member for Giles make passing lanes between neighbouring cities (from Port Augusta to Port Lincoln) a priority?

For a number of years community members, including local mayors, have pushed the state government to implement overtaking lanes between Port Augusta to Port Lincoln.

An increase in heavy vehicles on our roads as a result of increasing industry has caused regular highway users to call for increased road infrastructure to allow for easy overtaking of these heavy vehicles.

Politicians are often quick to tell the electorate what they've achieved during their time in office but does the perception match the reality?

We want to know what the elected member for Giles, whether it be Labor or Liberal, will do to push our cause and see overtaking lanes implemented in our region.

JOHN MUSCIO: It would be a good idea, but it isn’t a big issue, there’s not that much traffic.  There are bigger issues than that they can spend money on.

EMMA FOX: Yes because there are a few people on the road who aren't confident overtaking. Passing lanes will make them more confident drivers and be safer for all.
