$21M for Projects to Fix Local Roads in the Cootamundra Electorate

Published on 06 July 2020


The Australian and NSW Governments will join forces to turbocharge a program which will improve local roads in communities across the Cootamundra electorate and create regional jobs.

A total of $21,839,163 is being invested in 43 road projects across all nine Local Government Areas in the Cootamundra electorate.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the success of local projects was testament to the hard work of the Councils in the Cootamundra electorate.

“I am so proud of how our Councils have jumped at this opportunity to improve local roads and improve safety across the electorate,” Ms Cooke said.

“This is a great partnership between all levels of government who have come together to improve road safety and kickstart our rural and regional economies at this tricky time.”

The Australian Government has committed $191 million to build on the first round of the NSW Government’s $500 million Fixing Local Roads program, ensuring even more regional communities benefit, faster.

NSW Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said the NSW Government was also accelerating its funding for the program to get more projects to seal, maintain and repair local roads under way faster.

“We’re not just putting our foot down in terms of delivering this package – we’re turbocharging it to ensure we create jobs and create better journeys on the roads that really matter to local communities,” Mr Toole said.

Projects will need to be delivered within two years of receiving funding, to ensure that local communities are benefiting sooner.

  • Thanowring Rd ($360,000)
