More Funding To Fix Roads In Cowra

Member for Cootamundra, Steph Cooke has welcomed investment of $929,250 for Cowra Shire Council, under the latest round of the Fixing Local Roads Program to improve regional roads.

Cowra’s project will involve sealing the Local Collector Network and is among 138 projects to rollout under the $153 million third round of the program.

“This project will give Cowra Shire Council a helping hand to address their maintenance backlog and to maintain roads that matter to the Cowra Community,” Ms Cooke said.

Cowra Shire Council Mayor Bill West says this funding is vital for Cowra’s roads.

“This funding is important as we continue to improve the standard of our local road network,” Cr West said.

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said Fixing Local Roads had already delivered more than $394 million for 361 projects across 91 regional Local Government Areas from Armidale to Albury in the first two rounds.

Fixing Local Roads is a $500 million NSW Government program, which was boosted by the Australian Government over the first two rounds with an additional $191 million.
