Road maintenance blitz ramps up
Councils across Western Victoria can now apply for a share in more than $70 million for safer and more reliable roads from the Andrews Government.
Second round grants of up to $1.5 million are now available to rural councils to carry out important road rehabilitation and resealing works, road safety improvements, bridge strengthening and other upgrades.
Member for Western Victoria and Minister for Roads, Jaala Pulford, said the funding boost builds on the biggest road maintenance blitz regional Victoria has ever seen.
“We’re investing $333 million this year to repair, rebuild and resurface more than 1,500 kilometres of country arterial roads,” Ms Pulford said.
