Fixing Local Roads in Bass Coast Shire
Bass Coast Shire gets help to fix local road network with $100 million Fixing Country Roads Program.
By Portal Admin - 12th November 2018 - Back to News
The Andrews Labor Government will help Bass Coast Shire fix its local road network through the $100 million Fixing Country Roads Program.
Member for Eastern Victoria Harriet Shing today announced more $600,000 to rehabilitate and widen a 620-metre section of Loch-Wonthaggi Road.
The upgrade will involve completely rebuilding this section of road, as well as installing new guardrail and fresh line-marking to improve safety.
Loch-Wonthaggi Road is an important freight route and services the region’s dairy, agricultural and tourism industries.
Bass Coast Shire has co-contributed $50,000 to the project and will deliver this local road upgrade by June 2019.
The $100 million Fixing Country Roads Program is part of Labor’s record $941 million invested in regional roads.
These grants are on top of the $333 million dedicated to regional road maintenance, which is being delivered by the new country roads authority – Regional Roads Victoria (RRV).
Applications for round two of the Fixing Country Roads Program will open in early 2019.
