Air­ports to be up­graded

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MORE than $8 mil­lion to up­grade air­port run­ways at Gayn­dah, Monto and Mun­dub­bera was an­nounced this week as part of the lat­est round of Roy­al­ties for the Re­gions fund­ing.

The Royal Fly­ing Doc­tors Ser­vice called for up­grades fear­ing planes would not be able to land in the fu­ture.

Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney said Cal­lide re­ceived almost $45 mil­lion in the past three years since the pro­gram was in­tro­duced in 2012, in­clud­ing $25 mil­lion for the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil.
