The City of Casey have taken their fight against Vic Roads to the freeway

The City of Casey are fed up with fronting the graffiti bill and have purchased a number of signs to be posted along the Monash Freeway.

The signs will direct motorists to call Vic Roads when they spot some graffiti. 

The council want VicRoads to pay for the hundreds of thousands the council spends each year to clean up their section of the freeway.

3AW Breakfast spoke with the Mayor of Casey who says – ‘Vicroads quotes $100,000 for the whole state for Graffiti clean up’.

– ‘While the City of Casey spends around $400,000 a year’.

Councillor Aziz says – ‘I think it’s an issue that’s in the too hard basket for them (vicroads)’.

City of Casey resident, Tegan was more concerned about street lighting in her area.

She says she wrote a letter to the council and never received a reply.
