Further Funding for Key Roads

Further Funding for Key Roads 

Publish Date: 10 May 2019

Watchem-Warracknabeal Road

Further good news for Buloke Shire came this week when another $1.8 million of funding was announced from the State Government’s Fixing Country Roads Program. 

The funding will see upgrade works completed on the Culgoa-Ultima Road as well as the next stage of the Watchem- Warracknabeal Road upgrade.

The news comes on the back of the announcement earlier this week of $320,000 from the program for Stage 1 of the Birchip Safer Cumming Avenue project.

These announcements represent $2.12 million in State Government investment toward the three projects which total $3.18 million. 

“It is wonderful to receive the news that each of the three projects Council applied for under the Fixing Country Roads Program have been funded. This result underlines Council’s direction in community planning and alongside next year’s planned investment in roads of around $4 million is a great result for our community and helps ensure their safety and the safety of other users of these roads”, said Mayor Cr Carolyn Stewart.
