Major freight roads in the Loxton-Waikerie council area are set for significant upgrades, thanks to a $4.32 million Federal Government funding announcement.
As part of the Heavy Vehicles Safety Program, 13 key state road intersections received $1.3 million in funding and 85 local road intersections received $2 million, while $1.02 million has been allocated towards sealing a 17-kilometre stretch of Taplan Road.
Federal MP Tony Pasin said “This vital funding will allow communities right across the country to fast-track their highest-priority infrastructure projects, providing a much-needed boost to local jobs and the economy,”
Council CEO David Beaton said “These upgrades will improve productivity and allow greater freight access across the whole of the Council area”
Works are expected to be completed over the next year.
