Narrandera Shire Council has welcomed the NSW Government’s funding announcement of $815,539 through the Fixing Local Roads Program to rebuild part of Old Wagga Road, Narrandera.
This funding will enable Council to significantly improve the road which is a key link for locals and visitors to some of our key recreational sites including Rocky Waterholes and Five Mile. The works will include widening and resurfacing the road starting from the Showground.
Narrandera Shire Council General Manager Mr George Cowan is delighted with the allocation of funds under the Fixing Local Roads Program.
“These funds will allow Council to reconstruct a section of Old Wagga Road that has become dangerous, it is deformed and narrowed at the edges,” Mr Cowan said.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the project is one of eight successful projects in the electorate, allowing Council to undertake crucial rehabilitation and maintenance works.
“These works will help to make the school bus run, the commute to and from work safer for locals who rely on this road every day.”
