Upgrades to two roads made possible through funding

Narromine Shire Council is pleased to announce that Belowrie Rd at Tomingley and Eumungerie Rd at Narromine have been upgraded.

“Narromine Shire Council has received $300,000 from the NSW Government through the Drought Relief Heavy Vehicle Access Program in order to upgrade these roads that are accessed by heavy vehicles during the drought,” said Jane Redden, General Manager of Narromine Shire Council.

“These funds support the increased movement of stock, feed and water as part of the drought relief,” said Ms Redden.

“Roads and Maritime Services’ partnership with Local Government has allowed this project to deliver infrastructure projects in various drought affected communities.”

“These upgrades form part of our commitment in the Community Strategic Plan to ensure that our road network is safe, well maintained and appropriately funded,” she said.

The upgrades have been met with approval from residents along the two roads.

“Thank you for your prompt action with regards to maintenance of Belowrie Road,” said a Belowrie Road resident, in an email to Council.
“Your team has done an outstanding job. Council staff are evidently excellent operators as the condition and safety of the road has been significantly improved.”
