A $100 million road maintenance blitz for more than 70 kilometres of roads in Myall Lakes as part of a partnership between the NSW Government and MidCoast Council.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has said the NSW Government would deliver $50 million to match the MidCoast Council.
“This significant funding injection will dramatically improve the safety and drivability of 70 kilometres worth of local roads,” Ms Berejiklian said.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro said the package would include maintenance work in a number of arterial roads.
“I know the local community has fought long and hard for this funding,” Mr Barilaro said.
Minister for Roads and Freight Melinda Pavey said 25 separate road projects across Myall Lakes would be upgraded as part of the $100 million package.
“The work will include the reconstruction of existing roads, re-sealing and the re-building of bridges throughout the region,” Ms Pavey said.
MidCoast Council Mayor David West said this announcement was a game changer for the MidCoast Region.
“For far too long our communities suffered as individual councils were unable to maintain our local roads, but today as one Council that all changes,” Cr West said.
