Senator WRIGHT - Yesterday Senator Bishop asked me a question about a survey of traffic on the Eyre Highway. I can now give him information we have obtained from the Western Australian Tourist Authority. In 1964-65 when the road was sealed to 150 miles east of Norseman, leaving 300 miles to the Western Australian border unsealed, the average number of vehicles crossing the highway both ways was 76 a day. In 196S-69 the average was 14S a day and in 1969-70 it was 168. The sealing to the border was completed in September 1969.
