Bega Valley Shire Council welcomes the $1.9 million investment to seal Kameruka Lane announced by Member for Bega, Andrew Constance yesterday.
Bega Valley Shire Mayor, Cr Russell Fitzpatrick said the funding, which has been allocated under the Fixing Local Roads Program, will improve safety for residents and visitors, as well as improve vital transport links from the Snowy Mountains Highway.
“The community has been advocating for this road to be sealed for some time, and this extremely welcome investment from the NSW and Federal Governments will enable us to carry out this important upgrade,” Cr Fitzpatrick said.
“Although this project is a priority, our immediate short-term focus is on restoring safe access across the shire following last week’s significant flooding.”
Council will now await a funding deed which will include delivery milestones and completion timeframes. The project will then be scheduled for delivery in amongst the already large program of works that Council is delivering.
