Griffith City Council is pleased to announce that the new Griffith Livestock Marketing Centre Truck Wash is now fully operational.
Griffith Mayor Councillor, John Dal Broi said the dual truck wash will improve operations for livestock carriers.
“The Griffith Saleyards attracts sellers and buyers from right across NSW as well as interstate so it’s important that we are able to provide carriers with these improved truck washing services,” said Councillor Dal Broi. This is an excellent result for all concerned and best of all allows users access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
“This truck wash will increase productivity and reduce effluent spills that cause road safety issues and the spread of noxious weeds and disease.”
Users will need to purchase an Avdata Key from Council’s Customer Service to operate the facility.
The two-bay truck wash now accommodates heavy vehicles up to Road Train size.
The $388,940 project is part of the joint Fixing Country Truck Washes program with Griffith City Council also contributing to the upgrade. Council was awarded $78,095 under the NSW Government’s Restart NSW funding, matched by a further $78,095 from the Federal Government.
Parliamentary Secretary to the Deputy Premier Steph Cooke said the new facility will benefit drivers, local businesses and road safety.
“This facility will save time and money for the hundreds of drivers who pass through the region every day,” Ms Cooke said.
“With this challenging time I am so pleased the NSW Government has helped bring this project to life, which will be a boost for many local businesses. I look forward to seeing it in action.”
