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.’
