Work to fix local roads will soon be underway across the Temora Shire thanks to a joint funding effort from the Australian and NSW Governments.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke announced funding for three projects which will share in $2,600,000 from the Fixing Local Roads program.

“This is a fantastic boost for the entire region and means everyone using our roads, from school buses, increasing agriculture freight and visitors, can travel more safely around our region,” Ms Cooke said.

“Congratulations to the Temora Shire Council for securing this funding and undertaking this vital work.”

Temora Shire Council Mayor Cr Rick Firman said the funding was a fantastic boost for the region.

“This is very significant funding that we have received from our State and Federal Governments, we are extremely grateful to Ms Cooke and Mr McCormack for their generosity,” Cr Firman said.

“We would not be able to do these works as soon as we are able to now without these funds. We have never seen money come out to the bush like we have seen in recent years, and Temora Shire does not take one dollar for granted.”

The Australian Government has committed $191 million to build on the first round of the NSW Government’s $500 million Fixing Local Roads program, ensuring even more regional communities benefit, faster.
