$1m of street and road repairs - is your suburb included?

Hawkesbury City Council has been handed $1.08M under the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

North Richmond, Freemans Reach, Hobartville, Richmond, Windsor, McGraths Hill, Mulgrave and Pitt Town are all set to benefit from the Federal grant funding for repairs to footpaths and roads.

The program is part of the Commonwealth Government’s $500 million Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program to assist local councils to deliver priority projects that:

· focus on local road and community infrastructure upgrades and maintenance

· involve construction, maintenance and/or improvement to council owned assets and that are accessible to the public

· support jobs, businesses and resilience in local economies.

As part of this funding, local councils were able to choose the projects to be funded, focussing on local priorities that create the greatest benefit for the community.

“The emails and calls to my office indicate that maintaining local roads and increasing the amount of footpaths is one of the biggest challenges for this large local government area,” says Macquarie MP Susan Templeman.

“It’s good to see the funds being distributed across many of the major centres for the safety and wellbeing of local residents.”

Here’s the list of repairs to be carried out, with some – Charles Street footpath (below), North Richmond, for example, already completed:
