MAYORS have called for state government action on highway infrastructure works, amid Civil Contractor Federation concerns about Midland Highway tenders.
The federation on Monday accused the government of a slow delivery of tenders for work on the highway, which were announced for release between October and December 15.
The government said there were a number of processes to complete before tenders were awarded, and that the Civil Contractors Federation had been contacted regarding anticipated timeframes.
However, Southern Midlands mayor Tony Bisdee said works from the first round of tenders were still incomplete.
"Works on Constitution Hill at Dysart have been ready for sealing for the last three or four months," Cr Bisdee said.
"I keep ringing the Department of State Growth's roads division, and they keep telling me, 'yes, it's going to be done next week'.
"It's not completed, they've spent a lot of money there, nobody's using the road, it's not sealed and the safety barrier is not up - I can't see why, it has an 80km/h speed limit on it, and it should be 110km/h."
Northern Midlands mayor David Downie said the government had spent one year developing the proposal for the Perth to Breadalbane highway duplication and still had no road to show for it.
"They said contracts would be issued in 2015 for a start work early 2016, but I haven't got any more up-to-date information," Cr Downie said.
"It's taken a long time since it was announced, we would like to see that development start sooner rather than later."
Brighton mayor Tony Foster said he had no qualms with the Midland Highway works, but was tired of "promises that are never fulfilled".
"My frustration goes back a lot further than that, the federal and state government committed to do the Granton to Dysart works, the Brighton Bypass then the Bridgewater Bridge," Cr Foster said.
"That was nine years ago.
"The [then] Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources did concept plans, which came to Brighton and Glenorchy councils, they showed us what they were going to do.
"They did stage 1 at Brighton, we're thankful for that, but now they've walked away from those others."
