Temora Shire’s Kurrajong Street, Narraburra Street, Mirrool Road, Whites Road, Thom Street, North Street and Lucas Street are set for improvements, thanks to funding of $999,399 secured through the latest round of the NSW Nationals’ $500 million Fixing Local Roads program.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the funding is one of eight successful projects secured for the electorate, allowing Councils to undertake crucial rehabilitation and maintenance works.
“Local motorists have been in regular contact with me about the state of our road network, and this funding that has been secured will go a long way towards supporting 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 these roads every day, while reducing the wear and tear on tyres and cars.”
Temora Shire Council Mayor Cr Rick Firman said this funding is a welcomed investment into the roads across the shire.
“Our local roads have taken a beating over the past few months and this boost of funds will assist the council to undertake the repairs needed to keep the roads safe for our road users,” Mr Firman 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.
