Another $200k has been awarded under the Bridges Renewal Program this time to the Eurobodalla Shire Council for works on Cullendulla Drive in Long Beach.
Federal Member for Gilmore, Ann Sudmalis said the Coalition Government is getting the job done.
“Working with Local and State Governments, we are rolling out road works right across Gilmore, better roads mean better access. By strengthening our road networks we help to get greater connectivity for both essential and nonessential services,” she said.
Eurobodalla Mayor Liz Innes welcomed the funding, saying that Council will use the money to widen the narrow culverts this financial year.
“This is all part of a bigger program to improve safety on Cullendulla Drive. Council has already widened the road shoulders in sections, installed safety barriers and resurfaced the road.
“Ann understands that we want the road network to meet the needs of our community, particularly in growth areas like Long Beach. I’m grateful for her advocacy on our behalf,” said Mrs Innes.
Mrs Sudmalis said “the $162.53 million funding toward round three of the Bridges Renewal program for the renewal and upgrade of 186 bridges was in addition to the $216 million committed under the first two rounds.”
The Federal Government’s financial commitment in this round was matched by successful applicants. Only projects up to $5 million were able to apply in this round.
