Upgrades at airports
Five regional airports in the Wimmera-mallee will share in $1.6-million from a Federal Government commitment to undergo necessary safety and serviceability upgrades.
Airports at Swan Hill, Hopetoun, Horsham, Nhill and Mildura all received money under round two of the government’s Regional Airports Program.
Member for Mallee Anne Webster said the projects would improve safety, security and amenities at airports across her electorate.
“These upgrades include fencing improvements to keep animals out, new lights for runways, taxiways and windsocks, installation of navigational aids and apron upgrades allowing improved use by firebombers,” she said.
“Every dollar spent on local infrastructure is a dollar well spent and I look forward to working with the community to deliver this vital funding as we continue recovering from the pandemic.”
