Our emergency service personnel play a vital role. They leave their families, loved ones and friends at any time to help people in dire need.
THE $86 million upgrade of the notorious Ravenswood intersection is the perfect opportunity to honour our emergency services personnel.
An overpass is almost certain to feature in the final plans for the upgraded intersection.
That overpass provides the state and federal governments and the wider Bendigo community with a great opportunity to honour the men and women who dedicate their lives to helping others through the emergency services.
It makes sense to have such a large scale project honouring such an important part of our community.
Our emergency service personnel play a vital role.
They are prepared to leave their families, loved ones and friends at any time to help people in dire need.
They often report for duty when most people are out enjoying themselves such as Christmas, Easter and other popular holidays periods.
The very reason the Ravenswood intersection is being upgraded is the huge danger is presents to motorists. How many crashes have happened at this site? How many times have emergency services been called to lend a helping hand.
Dedicating the new Ravenswood intersection to this highly valuable group would be worthy recognition for all they have done for us through the years.
