In a win for road users in the Mulgoa electorate, $304,000 in NSW Government funding has been allocated in the 2015-16 Budget for improvements to local and regional roads through the Safer Roads Program.
“This is part of the NSW Government’s 2015-16 record road safety budget of $307 million, made up of State and Federal contributions,” Tanya Davies said.
Locally in the Mulgoa electorate, the program will fund upgrades including Kingshill Road, Mulgoa and Horsley Road, Horsley Park which is positive news for all road users.
Projects approved under this program are lower cost improvements which can be delivered quickly to provide greater safety for all road users in local communities.
“I was thrilled to hear about the funding we were allocated”, said Tanya Davies.
These important road safety projects will be delivered in partnership with Local Government.
Tanya Davies said “Planning work can now start and improvements will be delivered as soon as possible.”
The funding is part of the NSW Road Safety Strategy which aims to reduce the number and severity of crashes on NSW roads.
