Page roads to see $191 million in upgrades

The Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan says that Federal and NSW Governments will join forces to turbocharge a program which will improve local roads and create jobs.

Mr Hogan says that the Federal Government has committed $191 million to build on the NSW Government’s $500 million Fixing Local Roads program, ensuring even more communities benefit.

Mr Hogan says this is about generating jobs, encouraging spending and stimulating local economies.

‘This will see $14.5 million invested across 16 projects in our electorate. It means smoother, safer trips along the roads our community use every day.’

    Whoohoo !
    With all that money to encourage employment ( or at least feed sub-contractors ) It does make you wonder why the road to the World Heritage , Nightcap National Park, is still a dangerous,unsealed goat-track.
    Now don’t get me wrong I see no great benefit in ecouraging more tourists, I see what they have done to Byron and that whole stretch of once magnificent coast, but what about the poor locals forced to risk life and limb on a daily basis ? It does seem as though it is more important to dig up some of the already palatial patches of Lismore CBD, that way it’s close to the shops for lunch ?
