$263,000 for road upgrades in fast-forward to boost local jobs
2 July 2020
Member for Albury Justin Clancy has announced that two road projects aimed at delivering safer and smoother journeys across the Albury Electorate have received a boost as part of the NSW Government’s statewide stimulus package.
“As a result of this package, $263,000 has been allocated for road rehabilitation and intersection upgrade projects in the Albury Electorate,” Mr Clancy said.
“This work will help provide smoother, stronger and safer roads for all road users.”
A road surface upgrade and safety improvement project on the Riverina Highway, between Howlong and Corowa, has had its $100,000 funding fast-tracked.
The funds will be used to buy gravel for the rehabilitation project, which will deliver up to 10 kilometres of strengthened road, drainage improvements, safety improvements and wide centre line treatment for improved safety.
Work is expected to start early in the 2020-21 financial year.
A further $163,000 in funding was also brought forward to resurface the road at the intersection of the Newell Highway and Federation Way at Morundah.
Mr. Clancy said stimulus funding from the $2.3 billion COVID-19 package announced in March has allowed local projects to be delivered sooner, while also creating 20 jobs and keeping money in the region.
Motorists should plan their trip, allow extra travel time and follow the directions of advance warning vehicles all signs, including reduced speed limits.
