Cowra Shire Council will soon start receiving funds totalling $441,613.16 for urgent pothole repairs, under the NSW Government’s $50 million Fixing Local Roads Pothole Repair Round.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the money was going straight into Cowra Shire Council’s bank account to help them cover the extra costs and workload pressures following this year’s unprecedented rain and storms.

“These grants are a rapid injection of cash to help councils get on with the job of repairing potholes to get us through the wet summer ahead,” Ms Cooke said. “This is on top of the ongoing investment in a stronger road network through Fixing Local Roads, Fixing Country Roads and Fixing Country Bridges.”

Cowra Mayor, Cr Bill West, welcomed the extra money announced under the Fixing Local Roads Pothole Repair Round.

“We have nearly 1300 kilometres of local and regional roads to manage across the Cowra LGA. Every dollar counts towards ensuring they are repaired as quickly as possible,” Cr West said.

“It is our top priority to patch potholes on these roads our community rely on, to improve safety and reduce wear and tear on vehicles.”
