Marrar North Road in Murrulebale is set for an overhaul with funding of $454,718 secured by Coolamon 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.
“Road users have made regular contact with me about the condition of our road network, so I am very pleased to have secured this funding to support much-needed repairs,” Ms Cooke said.
“These works will help to make the school bus run, the commute to and from work safer for locals who rely on this road every day.”
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.
Coolamon Shire Council Mayor Cr David McCann said this funding is greatly appreciated and will support improvements in the road network to cater for heavy vehicle efficiencies across various transport routes.
“The Marrar North Road is an important link in our freight network that help move the grain and produce to markets,” Cr McCann said.
