Mr MORRIS (Mornington) (12:55): (4733) My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety.

The issue is the lack of appropriate speed reductions during school times outside Balcombe Grammar School on the Nepean Highway at Mount Martha.

This is an issue I have raised on numerous occasions in the house, because unlike other locations in the electorate, the speed limit is a constant 80 kilometres per hour. It is not reduced, so it is dangerous.

In December 2019 I again raised this issue with the then minister and requested renewed consideration. The minister responded in January and indicated that the site visit and pedestrian count would be undertaken.

The school is not aware that this has occurred, and that is not surprising given the events of this year. But equally, with things getting back to normal, it is not appropriate yet to get an accurate figure this year.

So the question is: has the site visit occurred?

If so, when was it undertaken and what was the result?

If not, will the count be undertaken in term 1, 2021?
