Roads money call
Local government councils across Western Victoria can apply for new State Government funding as part of a $941-million investment in regional roads.
Labor Member for Western Victoria Jaala Pulford said the Fixing Country Roads Program was designed to help rural and regional councils with grants to fix local roads and bridges.
She said the government was investing $333-million this year to repair, rebuild and resurface 1500 kilometres of country roads, creating more than 650 construction jobs in regional Victoria.
She said projects would include rebuilding deteriorating roads, sealing gravel roads, bridge strengthening, intersection improvements and safety upgrades.
Applications close on October 15.
