NSW Govt Funds Regional, Local Road Repairs in Lithgow

Lithgow Council

Lithgow City Council has been provided $1.67 million in funding by the NSW Government to repair damaged roads.

“The past two years have put a terrible strain on the resources of all Councils across the state, and this is most apparent when you see the poor condition of roads. ” said Lithgow City Council’s Mayor, Councillor Maree Statham. “For this reason, the announcement of a grant of $1,673,838.00 to Council to undertake road repairs across the area is greatly appreciated.”

“The Council has spent $17.5 million on disaster recovery,” said Mayor Statham. “This includes minor, temporary works like pothole patching, and major projects like Coxs River Road and Wolgan Gap. The task of recovery is going to take another 24 months at least, and it will be costly. With Councils spending first and most often recovering funding later there can be challenges with cash flow. For this reason, we thank the NSW Government for the provision of this funding ahead of the works being done.”

Mayor Statham added “These funds will be allocated quickly to projects to ensure the repairs are commenced promptly.”
