Some years ago words truckies used to describe the Hann Highway between Hughenden and the Lynd Junction included “notorious, dangerous” and a few others which can’t be mentioned here.
Most of the 250-kilometre road was dirt and it was a genuine nightmare to negotiate.
Each year some work has been done upgrading the Hann, which is an inland route, if the coastal areas have floods.
Now most of the Hann has been sealed which is good news for our truckie mates.
I was looking through some archives the other day and came across some pics of a road train along the Hann.
Back in 2004 I attended a meeting at Clothes Peg Station beside the Hann where concerned residents formed an Action Group to lobby for an upgrade.
Seems people power has worked.
