Slow moving trains and heavy equipment are working 24 hours a day, so please take care during the Sugar Crushing

Every year there are accidents, sometimes tragic,  as the sugar crushing season goes into full swing.

Understandable in many ways as loco lines that haven't been used for 6 months or so are suddenly in operation again and very large, slow-moving machinery takes to our roads.

I spoke to Mackay Canegrowers Chair Kevin Borg on 4MK.

It's so easy to lose concentration when there's been nothing happening for 6 months or you suddenly come up behind a slow moving haul-out vehicle, so please keep your eyes peeled and make this the safest season ever!
