DELIVERING BETTER ROADS FOR STRATHBOGIE SHIRE

Strathbogie Shire roads are set for upgrades thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.

Labor Upper House Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, today joined Labor candidate for Euroa, Fionna Deppeler-Morton in Euroa to announce $500,000 in works could get under way.

The projects announced today include:

  • Coombs Road, Mangalore – pavement and reseal rehabilitation
  • Zanelli Road, Nagambie – pavement rehabilitation and reseal
  • Moormbool Road, Graytown – pavement rehabilitation and reseal

“These projects fully funded by the Andrews Labor Government were identified by Strathbogie Shire will improve safety on local roads,” Ms Symes said.

“We know how important road safety is to country Victorians and that is why Labor is investing in local projects identified by the Shire to make our roads safer.”

These initiatives follow the biggest road maintenance blitz regional Victoria has ever seen, with $333 million invested this year to repair, rebuild and resurface 1,500 kilometres of country roads – creating more than 650 construction jobs in country Victoria.

The Labor Government has more than doubled road maintenance spending since coming to office.
