Mr PEDERICK (Hammond) (15:03): Still on a roll—that's what he asked for. My question is to the Minister for Regional Roads. Does the minister intend to upgrade Barunga Gap Road between Bute and the Augusta Highway? With your leave, sir, and that of the house, I will explain.

Leave granted.

Mr PEDERICK: I have heard from constituents that this road is in a poor condition, particularly due to the numerous trucks travelling along it to the Viterra site at Snowtown.

The Hon. G.G. BROCK (Stuart—Minister for Local Government, Minister for Regional Roads, Minister for Veterans Affairs) (15:04): I thank the member for that question. Yes, we have had some correspondence from not only yourself. You texted me a photo and thank you very much for that. The member for Narungga has also mentioned that road to me. Also, the department has done some work on the shoulder sealing of that road. We have to be very careful about the grain trucks going through at that particular time, but I have been talking to the member for Narungga and we are looking at that in the next 12 months.
