Hawkesbury Council is receiving $2.4m for new paths and path repairs, on top of $1m handed over in July, as part of the Federal government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI) Program.


Hawkesbury Mayor Patrick Conolly, welcomed the announcement and said there were “a number of projects set to benefit from the funding”.


These are the projects beginning in 2021:

· 1.2m wide concrete footpath on the Southern side of Andrew Thompson Drive between Red House Crescent and McGrath Road, McGraths Hill.


· 1.2 m wide concrete footpath on the southern side of Arndell Street between George Street and Court Street, Windsor. The project will provide a 200m section of new concrete foot paving.


· 1.2m wide concrete footpath on the northern side of Bathurst Street between Buckingham Street and Eldon Street, Windsor.


· 1.2m wide concrete footpath on the Western side of Chatham Street between Bathurst Street and Eldon Street, Pitt Town. This is a missing section approximately 40m in length.


· 1.2 m wide concrete footpath on both sides of the road in Court Street between Arndell Street and Pitt Street. The project will provide a total of 120m of concrete footpaving.


· 1.2m wide concrete footpath on the southern side of Eldon Street between Somerset Street and Chatham Street.


Two projects have already been completed with LRCI funding:

· 1.2 m wide concrete footpath on the southern side of the road between Laurence Street and Castlereagh Road, Hobartville.


· 1.2 m wide concrete footpath on the eastern side of the road between Luttrell Street and Harold Avenue, Hobartville.


Three LRCI projects which are underway and expected to be completed by the end of 2020 are:
