Senator TIERNEY —I give notice that, on the next day of sitting, I shall move:

  That the Senate—

  (a)condemns the Government's failure to respond to the dangerous traffic conditions on Lenaghans Drive link-road which joins the incomplete F3 Freeway project to the New England and Pacific highways;

  (b)notes, with concern, that at the northern end of the F3 Freeway west of Newcastle, traffic flows have now reached over 15 300 vehicles per day, a full 10 years earlier than expected;

  (c)expresses its sympathy with the residents of Lenaghans Drive whose constant appeals to the Minister for Transport (Mr Brereton) to bring forward the next stage of the F3 Freeway expansion and fix the problem, have been ignored; and

  (d)condemns the continuing mismanagement of the F3 Freeway expansion program by this Australian Labor Party Government.
