Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, today officially opened completed works of the Nagambie Streetscape upgrade.

Ms Symes said this important project was the first step in repositioning Nagambie as a destination of choice for lifestyle and tourism visitation.

The Victorian Government provided $500,000 toward the project, which will deliver a more accessible, functional streetscape with improved amenity, better connected service roads and an attractive town-entry feature roundabout at the intersection of High and Goulburn streets.

Strathbogie Shire Council and the local community worked together to shape an overall concept plan for the redevelopment of the main street of Nagambie in order to maximise its potential.

“The upgrade is also a means of increasing the focus of the town onto the beautiful environs of Lake Nagambie and increasing the town’s appeal and attraction,” Ms Symes said.

“Nagambie is a beautiful town with a huge potential for economic growth by maximising its tourism and lifestyle appeal.

“This new and attractive entry to the town will help shape a positive experience and bring visitors to Nagambie.

“I am pleased to be here today to share in the exciting future that is opening up for Nagambie.

“Supporting projects like these is the aim of our $500 million Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund, which will support major projects, create the jobs and industries of the future and build stronger country communities.”
