VIDEO: Fight begins to upgrade coast's worst intersection

Urraween Rd & Maryborough Hervey Bay Rd intersection: A petition has been launched calling on the state government to upgrade the notorious intersection of Urraween Rd and Hervey Bay Maryborough Rd,

THE fight has begun to upgrade what many believe is the worst intersection on the Fraser Coast.

The intersection of Maryborough Hervey Bay Rd and Urraween Rd has been earmarked as needing an upgrade since formal discussions began between the State Government and the council in 2012.

Hervey Bay Chamber of Commerce vice president Geoff Redpath has organised the petition to upgrade the intersection.

He said no matter what side of politics had the money, the intersection needed to be fixed.

"I'm not sure why it hasn't happened," he said.

"But the he said, she said, they promised we didn't rhetoric from pollies, needs to stop."

"It's about being proactive."
