Cessnock confirms local roads funding

Cessnock City Council has secured more than $2 million in funding for three key projects under Phase 3 of the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

Council says it will contribute an additional $3 million to create a $5 million investment in local roads and community infrastructure.

The grant funding will be allocated to the following projects:

  • $800,000 for pavement rehabilitation as part of the Kurri Kurri CBD Upgrade (Council will contribute an additional $2,187,717);
  • $1,290,798 for the Local Roads Reseal Program (Council will contribute an additional $1,065,157);
  • $40,000 for Cliftleigh and Heddon Greta suburb entry signs.

Council General Manager, Lotta Jackson, welcomed the announcement and said she looks forward to seeing the important projects kick off.

“The Kurri Kurri CBD Upgrade is already underway and the addition of the pavement rehabilitation to the works program will go a long way to enhancing this much-loved town centre.”

“I am sure the community will also be pleased with the huge investment in our Local Roads Reseal Program which is targeted at making our roads safer for local residents.

“I would like to thank our staff who put a lot of time and effort into writing these successful grant applications, which deliver great benefits to our local community,” said Ms Jackson.
