Financial Boost to Assist in Road Repairs Across Cootamundra-Gundagai

Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council will soon receive funding of $2,491,307 through the NSW Government’s $280 million Regional and Local Roads Repair Program. 

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the Cootamundra-Gundagai region has over 1300km of roads to manage, with this latest funding a welcome boost allowing further repairs to be undertaken. 

“This investment is all about improving the roads we use every day, making them safer for the freight industry, tourists, and the commute to and from work or school,” Ms Cooke said. 

“It is fantastic to have this funding secured, which builds on an initial cash injection of $473,892 for council to fix potholes announced in December. 

“I am advised council has been sent the funding deeds, and once the deed is executed the money goes into the bank.” 

Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council Deputy General Manager of Operations, Mr Matt Stubbs said council welcomes the funding that will greatly assist with repairing the road network that has been impacted by wet weather over the past 12 months.

“Council faces a significant challenge to bring the network back to an acceptable level and this funding enables us to commence the planning and scheduling of much-needed repairs,” Mr Stubbs said.

The NSW Government continues to support local government areas in making our road network smoother and safer. Over the past five years, Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council has secured over $9.6 million in NSW Government funding to deliver 20 road projects through Fixing Local Roads and Fixing Country Roads, on top of assistance through Regional Roads Block Grant program and NSW Disaster Assistance Arrangements.
