lying face down unconscious in water, one and half metres deep. ACT Fire and Rescue arrived shortl after and retrieved the person fro investigation

Another two lives lost on a notorious stretch of road. It' s and
terrible time for their families f

for all of us to be honest. A
forty-five-year-old Canberra man an Queanbey
a forty-year-old woman from Queanbeyan were in this ute, when i H

Highway. It does appear from the fatigued
outset that it may well be a peop

people have died on the road in the long
past four months. The NRMA has Monar
long argued for upgrades to the alon
Monaro Highway, often listing it of
alongside the Kings Highway as one ide
of the region' s worst roads. One full
idea that' s been suggested is a dangero
full Government Review of the than
dangerous stretch. I' m more Ministe
than happy to put that to the w
Minister and to the Government that
we have another review of the Monar the
Highway. John Barilaro regards priorit
the highway as his number one
priority, promising to push for mor re
funding regardless of whether the motori
review goes ahead. Police want safet
motorists to listen to the road survive

to be a factor in a crash which Goul
