Could poor road funding be tied to politics?

Crouch highwayRoads Minister, Paul Toole, and Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast, Adam Crouch, on site

[Forum] I sympathise with Al Wright (Forum edition 193) regards the much needed road duplication work to reduce the traffic jam from Johnson Rd, Tuggerah, to north of Wyong, and the perception that the northern part of the Central Coast has been the bridesmaid when it comes to Coast road funding.

The issue has been around for a long time and when looking at possible reasons why, could it be the geographic area covered by the electoral seat of Wyong has been held by one side of politics (Labor) for 54 years of the seat’s 58 year existence?

Surely not.
