Our campaign for new highway

IT'S time for a four-lane highway between Rockhampton and Gracemere.

The Morning Bulletin today launches its Give Us Four campaign to push for an urgent upgrade to the Capricorn Hwy on this busy 7km link between a thriving city and a boom town.

Yesterday's crash was the fourth fatal accident in five years on the stretch.

In that time there have been more than 60 traffic accidents on a section of road that carries more than 16,000 vehicle movements every day.

Those are serious numbers.

And yes, sure we are talking serious cash - in the tens of millions of dollars - but there are lives at stake here.
