Old Cootamundra Road at Dirnaseer is set for an overhaul with funding of $2,684,423 secured by Junee 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.
Junee Shire Council General Manager Mr James Davis said they are thrilled with the funding announcement which provides for extensive road renewal works.
“It’s great to see the State Government is continuing to support rural councils through its Fixing Local Roads programme which is very much appreciated,” Mr Davis said.
