Three road projects in the Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) area will soon get underway thanks to support from the NSW Government.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke today joined CGRC Mayor Abb McAlister to announce $532,500 from the Fixing Local Roads program.

Reconstruction and sealing will be undertaken on Brawlin Road and Warralong Road, while French Street will undergo rehabilitation work.

Ms Cooke said the funding would help improve road safety in the region.

“We want everyone who uses our roads to get home safely, and part of reaching this goal is ensuring our road network is up to scratch,” Ms Cooke said.

“This funding joins $4,073,926 from round one of this great program which enabled 11 local road projects to get underway.”

“I am pleased the NSW Government is investing in improving road safety across the region.”

Mayor Abb McAlister said the council welcomed the support.

“Council is very appreciative of the hard work Steph has put in to get this funding,” Cr McAlister said.

“The more funding we can get the safer our roads will be which is our highest priority at the end of the day.”

“Roads are one of the biggest jobs a Council faces and we thank Steph for her help.”
