Girral Road and Blow Clear Road are set for improvements and rehabilitation after funding of $3,000,000 was secured by Bland Shire Council through the latest round of the NSW Nationals’ $500 million Fixing Local Roads program.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the project is one of eight successful projects in the electorate, allowing Council to undertake crucial rehabilitation and maintenance works.
“People living in the Bland Shire have been in regular contact with me regarding the state of the local roads. This funding will go a long way toward repairing the road network as well as improving safety for motorists on the school bus run, the commute to and from work or for popping down to the shops,” Ms Cooke said.
Bland Shire Council General Manager Mr Grant Baker said Bland Shire Council are very grateful to receive this funding.
“This will help with capital upgrades for our large road network,” Mr Baker said.
The $500 million NSW Government’s Fixing Local Roads program supports councils to improve routes that regional communities use every day, making journeys for locals, farmers, and freight safer, more efficient, and more reliable.
