Safer and faster journeys are on the way for the Mid-Western Region, with a priority local bus route to be sealed under the latest round of the NSW Government’s Fixing Local Roads Program.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said Mid-Western Regional Council has received $1.72 million to complete the sealing of Queens Pinch Road.
“The sealing of this busy rural road will dramatically improve safety for local motorists, as well as productivity for the region’s bustling agriculture sector,” Mr Saunders said.
“I’m also confident it will help to support our local tourist market when the region opens up again in the near future.
“This is one of the roads I’ve had lots of people talking to me about over the past year or so, and I’m delighted to be partnering with the local council to complete this long-awaited upgrade.”
Mayor of the Mid-Western Regional Council Mayor Des Kennedy said it’s fantastic to secure the funding to seal the remaining 6.4 kilometres of this priority local bus route.
“Once this project is complete, Queens Pinch Road will be sealed the entire way from Spring Flat to Windeyer,” Councillor Kennedy said.
“I’d like to thank the NSW Government for its assistance in helping to deliver this valuable project for the community.”
