Member for Nanango, Deb Frecklington and Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell have joined forces to call for funding to fix the D’Aguilar Highway between Kilcoy and Woodford.
Mrs Frecklington and Mr Powell met to discuss the problem and the growing number of complaints about this busy section of highway.
"We just can’t wait any longer. The Labor Government needs to put urgent funding towards resurfacing the section between Kilcoy and Woodford," Mrs Frecklington said.
"Andrew and I have launched a petition so we can demonstrate the huge amount of community concern about the current state of this road," Deb said.
Andrew Powell said that while other sections of the D’Aguilar Highway have been receiving much needed upgrades, the section between Woodford and Kilcoy continues to deteriorate with every downpour.
"All we seem to get are these basic patch jobs which just can’t cope with the high level of traffic we are now seeing on the D’Aguilar," Mr Powell said.
"They need to stop this patching and reseal the road urgently," he said.

Hard copies of the petition will also be available at key outlets around both the Woodford and Kilcoy communities.
