Long awaited upgrade

Mr Chester said, "The community has been seeking this upgrade for several years and I'm pleased the Federal Government is working in partnership with the council to deliver such a critical project."

"Once complete pedestrians will be able to utilise the existing walking paths along McNairn Road and not have to make risky decisions around oncoming traffic and trains." Mr Chester concluded.
