Roads fund­ing for sev­eral towns

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

LA­BOR can­di­date for Euroa Fionna Dep­peler-Mor­ton at­tended last week’s sports cen­tre fund­ing an­nounce­ment say­ing we re­ally need to make sure we have good in­fra­struc­ture for our kids to get out and about.

“This is an ex­am­ple of our age­ing in­fra­struc­ture in re­gional ar­eas and we need to make sure that we are sup­port­ing our kids get­ting off screens,” Ms Dep­peler-Mor­ton said.

“The com­mu­nity has re­ally ral­lied to­gether on this project and the $200,000 is a start and we are aware there is a lot more to be done.”.

Roads were also a topic of dis­cus­sion, with a se­ries of Strath­bo­gie Shire Roads set for up­grades.

Ms Symes an­nounced $500,000 last Thurs­day so works could get un­der­way, with projects in­clud­ing Coombs Road in Man­ga­lore, Zanelli Road in Nagam­bie and Moorm­bool Road in Gray­town.

Works will in­clude a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent pave­ment and re­seal re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.

“We know how im­por­tant road safety is to coun­try Vic­to­ri­ans and that is why La­bor is in­vest­ing in lo­cal projects iden­ti­fied by the Shire to make our roads safer,” Ms Symes said.

These ini­tia­tives fol­low the big­gest road main­te­nance blitz in re­gional Vic­to­ria, with $333 mil­lion in­vested this year to re­pair, re­build and resur­face 1500 kilo­me­tres of coun­try roads.
