Junee Shire to Benefit from over $1.5M for Road Repairs

Junee Shire Council will soon receive funding of $1,598,163 through the NSW Government’s $280 million Regional and Local Roads Repair Program. 

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said Junee Shire has over 870km of roads to manage, with this latest funding a welcome boost allowing further repairs to be undertaken. 

“This investment is all about improving the roads we use every day, making them safer for the freight industry, tourists, and the commute to and from work or school,” Ms Cooke said. 

“It is fantastic to have this funding secured, which builds on an initial cash injection of $301,004 for council to fix potholes announced in December. 

“I am advised council has been sent the funding deeds, and once the deed is executed the money goes into the bank.” 

Junee Shire Council General Manager, Mr James Davis said this funding is welcomed news which will be very helpful in carrying out important repairs to the road network.

“Our roads have sustained a great deal of damage, and this funding will go a long way to getting them back to ensure the safety of our community and visitors to the area,” Mr Davis said.

The NSW Government continues to support local government areas in making our road network smoother and safer. Over the past five years, Junee Shire Council has secured over $7.4 million in NSW Government funding to deliver 6 road projects through Fixing Local Roads and Fixing Country Roads, on top of assistance through Regional Roads Block Grant program and NSW Disaster Assistance Arrangements.
