WOODS POINT ROAD GETS SAFETY BOOST
Major and much needed resealing works have been completed along a 3.2 kilometre stretch of Woods Point Road at Woods Point, making the route much safer for drivers.
Labor Upper House Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, today announced the completion of the first significant upgrade at Woods Point Road for a number of years, with the road being resealed thanks to the Andrews Labor Government.
The $450,000 project involved widening the road and applying a new layer over the existing gravel surface.
The new surface not only improves safety for drivers, but the air quality for locals and the water quality of Lake Eildon.
With some sections of this road within three metres of the Goulburn River, the gravel surface resulted in dust and silt entering the waterway.
“Woods Point Road is now safer and easier to use for the people who rely on it every day,” Ms Symes said.
“Labor doubled regional road maintenance spending last year and is getting on with the job of improving country roads.”
The road is used by the locals, the mining industry, travellers and is a significant road to the Woods Point and Jamieson communities.
