The NSW government has announced almost $5 million dollars in funding for Byron Shire infrastructure.
Major road network upgrades in the north of the Shire are due to receive $3.2 million dollars under the Fixing Local Roads program.
The money is to go towards kerb repairs, heavy patching, asphalt resurfacing and line marking, with most of the work due to happen in Ocean Shores.
Another $1.57 million dollars is allocated towards replacing the shire’s three last timber bridges with concrete structures.
Nationals Member of the Legislative Council Ben Franklin announced the funding last Friday alongside Byron Mayor Simon Richardson, on Cr Richardson’s last day in the role.
