Road maintenance boost

Infrastructure. The Circular Head Council is set to receive its yearly Roads to Recovery allocation in November, with projects already earmarked for upgrades.

Over the next five years, a total of $3,249,068 will be allocated to the council by the federal government, with $541,511 made available for this financial year.

Engineering and projects manager Craig Reid said the incentive provided additional support to road upgrades and developments that were already marked for improvement.

Three projects set to benefit from the Roads to Recovery funding will be the Coopers Road bridge replacement near Rocky Cape, rehabilitation to Montagu/West Montagu Road and upgrades to Woolnorth Road.

Circular Head is second only to the Central Coast ($3,430,649) in terms of total funding amounts under the incentive, with the amount determined by factors including the area of the council and the total population.

Federal Member for Braddon Brett Whiteley said the government had extended Roads to Recovery for another five years, to ensure “local roads are safe” and “our communities are well connected”.

“These funds will make a real difference in building roads, repairing streets and creating better access across our community,” Mr Whiteley said.
